only other thoughts:
- Jeffrey is not strong enough to handle the 2nd line. He looks minor league out there. He has ET moments out there where he looks like he is just trying to not make mistakes. There is a stunning difference between him and BB.
- Where did TK go in the 3rd period? Maybe it was my eyes, but I swear I didn't see him the final 7 minutes. I would've put him on the crash line instead of Glass but it did not happen.
- While I'm not an Eaton fan, I thought he looked pretty good last night. Oh well.
And my parting words, get ready for Bortuzzo or Despres to be traded. You just get that feeling...
I could not agree more about Jeffrey. That guy is a much worse substitute for Malkin on the second line than Sutter. Mercifully, HCDB recognized that and made the adjustment in the 3rd period. Jeffrey is a versatile minor leaguer, but has no business stepping on to the top six spots.
I think DB was trying to get something (anything) out of his bottom 6 by leaving Sutter on the 3rd line.
