Tired & Confused

Well - another frustrating evening that left me tired & confused.  Really unsure how this team goes into these droughts where they cant score.  I really think it's time for Richards to go to a checking line (And don't tell me that him being with Gagne constitutes a checking line because they are so responsible defensively).  I honestly don't think it would hurt his scoring much if he played with JVR and Asham considering a large % of his points are PP points anyway. 

Although Giroux needs to realize he can shoot the puck in rather than deke it in some nights he is our most creative offensive presence by far.  He needs top 6 minutes.  Maybe he has some sort of magic that can get Simon "I'm not worried about my slump" Gagne a few tap ins and get him going. 

Also, I'm not sure how you do this but Briere needs to play in the middle.  Why can't Carter play wing?  If it's because of his faceoff % well....he can still take all the faceoffs playing wing and them simply switch with Briere after the puck drop.  

Don't be surprised to see Leino in the lineup.  It is an understated trade but we got rid of OKT for a player who Mike Babcock said just last year was one of the best offensive players he ever had to cut.  He may not amount to anything but worth taking a shot on since we really never gave anything up.

Anyway, apologies for the meandering message.  Huge week ahead where we need at least a split with Jersey & a sweep against the Habs.
