In response to dezaruchi's comment:
Kel, I thought he was clearly one of the better forwards last game and he was rewarded with a point. 3 times in the first period alone, he snuffed out Leafs rushes by taking away the passing lane and causing the puck to go out of play. That doesn't show on any stats sheets but CJ and his teammates realize it's worth. For anyone who chooses to blow it off as a fluke, just ask yourself if the many pucks that hit the shaft of Bergeron's stick or his shin pads just happens by accident.
Oh yeah, I heard Julien and then Bergeron go out of their ways to point out Jordy's contributions against the Leafs...saying things like 'we couldn't have won if Jordy didn't deflect those shots and what an unbelievable assist that was'.
Now back to reality...I guess your expectations for this kid are being met...but in my opinion, deflecting pucks out of play and delivering a mighty 2 points since he's been up do not meet my expectations.
Thanks for your input, but I'll stand by my opinion that this kid still has not proven earning a fulltime NHL roster spot despite a +/- rating of +2...after 9 games.
The sooner PC acquires some NHL talent for this team the Carons, Pandolfos and Bourques can be history and the B's might be able to get to the level of the Pens and Hawks.
Maybe Caron breaks out tonight seeing Daugavins shadow in the locker room. We can only hope.
Is that what "useless" means? Make up your mind jag off. Spooner and Subban haven't earned full time NHL roster spots yet. Does that mean they're useless? Stick to talking about something you know. Whatever that is. I only know what it isn't. There's no DH in hockey. Defense matters too.
