The guys in group B might be the ones on the outside looking in. Just how I interpreted it.
This is so interesting to me...
How can you look at these younger, hungrier guys like Sill, Ebbett, etc and still play Glass & Adams over these guys? Having 1 adams is okay, but Glass is just a joke. Just buy that scrub out and give one of these other guys a chance.

Same Bylsma fringe player grinder crap.
Aside from Ebbett, I agree with you. I love Shero, but signing Adams for another two years is a pathetic joke. Give me Harry Z over Glass anyday of the week. At least he'll hit the crap out of people and be a pest, which is something we lack. I love HZ's speed and tenacity and sadly we're going to be stuck with Glass and Adams and his 40% faceoff rate and absolute zero offensive talent. I don't expect our 4th liners to score at a decent clip, but it would be nice if they could pump one every so often and at least just grind and keep the puck out of our end. Putting Glass with Adams basically eliminates any chance of EVER scoring in 82 games, and yet it's not even like they're a physical, fast, intimidating bunch.
I'm sorry, just my feelings. I don't like those two together. I appreciate Adams' warrior type play, but not for another two years. I'm just of the belief that we could have found a younger, faster guy to do the same job, at probably the same level, and might actually be able to have a faceoff % above 42% or whatever he is. Maybe if Adams was platooning, but with DB you know he'll be out there every night.
