I personally was a little baffled as to why it took 21 games to determine that those lines were unproductive on the ice. Especially when every other team was able to light up the division 5 on 5. It is not like the Canadian division is filled with a bunch of defensive stalwarts. May those lines hopefully RIP.
Well, the Monahan Gaudreau connection scored ES in each of the first three games IIRC. But you actually think 3 games is enough of a test? And you folks accuse Ward of having a blender? Or past coaches of not giving Bennett enough of a shot on a top line? Chemistry isnít usually instant.
