When Greene pinches along the boards he often positions himself so he can use his right arm and push/throw the forward on his butt. If he has the proper position he can do this all day long without a penalty. In front of the net one has to be more careful when dumping somebody to the ice. I would say that during play, Greene dumps more players along the boards than in front of the net. In either case Greene and Mitchell are more inclined to do this compared to Scuderi.
Awesome! That should help our scoring.
All of these defensive breakdowns and blown coverages by our centers as well have led to Quick's poor .889 save %. Plus he has let in several soft goals on his own.
I like the Ellerby pickup. He has great physical skills but hasn't taken the next step to be consistent. He is most definitely an upgrade over Muzzin and Drewiske and at this point in time, Martinez. For the cost of a 5th round pick, I am surprised that is all he cost.
The Kings offense is still a mess. Besides Kopitar, Clifford, and Williams I see very little effort.
