Eaton doesn't have playoff speed. He will be exposed.
Mark it down and book it. Despres will be needed in the top 4 and will deliver.
Sticky it admin** If it doesn't happen, perm my account.
Someone give me some credit here....literally half my posts the last month have been PRO DESPRES, and for removing Glass for Bennett or Kennedy. And of course like everyone else. DUPER-SID-IGGY.
I would have put Letang - Despres together on game 1, and said Simon, you have 48 games to be a rookie. Be ready for the playoffs. Instead THE CAREER GRINDER COACH CONSISTENTLY SCREWED WITH DESPRES ALL SEASON. PLAYING THAT AHL DIRT SCRUB ENGELLAND, GIVING HIM SO MANY MORE MINUTES OVER DESPRES. GO LOOK AT ALL MY POSTS, I KNEW MARK EATON DIDN'T HAVE PLAYOFF SPEED. HE CAN'T PLAY 5V5. ENGELLAND IS A NUMBER 7 ONLY. SIMON DESPRES WAS WASTED ALL SEASON. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PLAYING CONSISTENT 20 MINUTES PER GAME.
NOW LOOK DAN. DESPRES NEEDS TO PLAY. STOP SCREWING HIM UP. NEVER AGAIN. DON'T TOUCH LETANG - DESPRES PAIRING FOR THE NEXT DECADE.

Im not sure how I can express to you how little anyone cares about what you predicted and how "right" you were.
Eaton looked bad in games 3 and 4... 4 in particular. BUT, Despres looked horrible in his first start in the playoffs as well. Last night, he looked solid, but I am not sure how you can say that what you predicted was on the money so far. Its not like Despres has been lights out or anything. Time will tell, but i would take it easy with the "patting yourself on the back" stuff.
