GDT: Detroit Red Wings at Buffalo Sabres, 1:08 p.m., February 9, 2019

I think, in these games where Skinner-Eichel aren't getting going right away, it would make sense to swap Sheary/Skinner for a little bit.

That was a stupid entry by Jack. He had Pommers ahead of him with speed and he chose to make move at the blue line. We know he can create on his own. He needs to use his line mates better.

Scandella is much worse, man he just gives away the puck in our own d zone.

Nope. For all of Scandella’s mistakes, he can still play at an NHL level. Sobotka is sub replacement level garbage. 

If Scandella were put on waivers today, half the teams in the league would put in a claim... if Sobotka was put on waivers today not a single team in the league would touch him.

Ok so I may be knit picking but Sobotka gets it over the line then stops skating. I know there was only a few seconds left but how about some tenacity. Maybe he wins the race maybe not.

Exactly, active coaching.. nowhere to be found

Not much of a period.  No home team statement. Not much energy.     Road teams like a scoreless first.

I still think Jack looks off. Twice I saw him waiting for a puck to come to him and twice a Detroit player skated to it first.

You're not. I was thinking the same thing. He could have drawn an interference penalty or something

That whole last thirty seconds guys were paying far too much attention to the clock in a negative way. SOBs lack of effort there was very noticeable and frustrating

That's nit picking. He wasn't going to draw anything there.

We're a 50 ft team, we either play all "D" and can't create, or we're selfish and can't defend..... We need 200 ft players

Maybe not but you never know. Full 60 minute game includes the last seconds of the first period.

It may be nitpicking but the team does not work hard all the time.  

Sobotka has a job on this team solely because of face-offs.

On the left dot if I recall.

Sometimes a team can be a reflection of their coach.  We all know how HCPH played as a player and I think our team reflects his soft play and defensive liabilities.  Compare that to the last game with the Canes (Rob B. HC), who played a complete 200ft game with tenacity...The Canes reflected his style as a player.

Sheary needed that (as did we!)
