I for sure was in the backseat of your wagon on that one. I did not and still don't want, JVR on this team. I remember being shocked and pissed when I found out. I believe my post was something like "...something something retread......."
He's currently 5th on the team in total points but it always feels those points are either tap ins where someone else does all the work, empty net goals or meaningless (like the 6th goal) ones. I have no data to back it up and don't have time
This is a matchup of two fairly equal teams. Of late, the Isles have played well against us. I agree with this pundit that home edge may matter if legs get tired late in the second of back-to-backs.
Every point counts.
