"It's not acceptable to play hockey for 20 minutes and not the other 40," ... "You judge yourself by your results, not your intentions. We're not satisfied at all tonight."
So we all heard Brooksie's comments ... the question is, who is he referring to?
Words with which I think we can all agree with. But as I thought about it, I started to wonder where we are to place the blame. M&P line is obviously absolved, and Semin hasn't been on the ice the past two nights, so that leaves:
1st line: Can't say that about Nicky, prob not Ovie either, and Brouwer has been having the same year he's had the previous two seasons.
2nd line: Can't pin it on Knubs surely, hard to pin it on a rookie like Eakins, so is MarJo not hustling?
4th line: Lack of effort or just, well, very 4th line in quality?
Defense: No Hamrlick tonight. Is it Wideman who's not giving his all?
Goalie: Is Neuvy not trying hard enough? What about Vokes?
Or is it kind of spread over the above?
Really interested to hear everyone's thoughts...
