WHAT ARE WE DOING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Word on the streets is that we're switching the defensive pairings tonight???
Letang will now be playing with Whitney.
Scuderi will be with Hal Gill.
Gonch and Brooks remain together.
Sydor remains a healthy scratch.
Therrien will match Gonch & Brooks with the Jagr line whenever possible.
Hal Gill & Letang were playing great together. Why are we switching this up? Gill is a guy who plays better when he's comfy with his mate. Witness the transition after the 1st few games when he arrived. It took him a week or so to get acclimated, and he's been a beast ever since. Now we're switching him to play with Scuderi?!?!?!?
Whitney's by far our biggest liability defensively, and by far the least physical. so we pair him with another puck-moving defenseman?!?!?!
Gill has been a Jagr Stopper over his career. Isn't that one of the reasons we acquired him?
I hope I heard this wrong. Because all of a sudden, I am very...very...very nervous. I've been a Therrien backer to this point, but if this goes wrong, I'm gonna do a Rambo on someone.
