Also, as far as Abdelkader goes, he went to MSU, so I don't expect much out of him as far as common sense goes. Let's get Draper back on the ice; he's got plenty of experience and won't fuck up in the capacity that Abdelkader could. We could also use a real boost in the faceoff circle; Z is getting his ass kicked.
Yup I agree with all of that. We definitely need someone better in the faceoff circle. I think Drapes needs to work on that faceoff skill and get in there to win draws especially on power plays. Bench Abby. Keep Franzen out if he's hobbled at all. And play the way they did in Game 6 and we will win for sure. The Sharks just arent as good as people think they are. If it wasnt for Niemi we would have won this series in Game 5/6 (I think they outplayed us in Game 2).
