Stars and Black Holes: Wild @ Sabres: 10-14-13
I don’t know about you guys, but I personally wouldn’t honor an opposing player that was good, not great for the organization and had one big moment. But enough about TBN hissy fits.
- Brian Flynn – He’s a third or fourth liner I wouldn’t mind having around when we’re actually good.
- Zemgus Girgensons – Rare bright spot. He’s been very solid in his measured icetime. Great heady play on the assist.
- Christian Ehrhoff – Everyone that laughed at this signing is a moron, I wish he was signed until he’s 50.
- Mark Pysysk – Still invisibly solid.
The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:
- Mike Weber – who seems destined to be on the ice for every goal against. Go to NHL.com and watch the Pominville goal. Weber makes a horrible pinch at his own blue line (wtf?) leaving…………Jamie McBain and Cody Hodgson? To play defense? Oh Christ…
- Drew Stafford – I hated giving him a star last night, that goal was awful.
- Cody Hodgson – The first goal was weak, but I’m just not going to criticize our goalies at one point. The positioning on that goal is sound (minus McBain’s spin move, Vanek takes the winger and Hodgson is late getting back to pick up the eventual goal scorer.
- Tyler Ennis – He hasn’t seemed dangerous at all.
