Tkachuk should look faster, he's a forward.

I didn't get to watch this game, but from the recap it appears "Captain Brewer" added to his impressive +/- total again today - two even strength goals and he's a -2 for a perfect night... and led all Blues skaters in TOI. He is now -6 in five games played, and working hard to take over the team lead.
Murray has got to go and soon.
I am tired of "tough loss" EVERY game lately.
I think Brewer has been playing pretty well IMO.
If you need a whipping boy...Kariya or Boyes would be better.
Are you serious? Half the time Brewer makes Walt look fast. Brewer is at least a step slow, poorly positioned, playing like he's a small player and - it *must* just be coincidence - the other teams SCORE GOALS when he is on the ice and our team does NOT SCORE GOALS.
The offense is playing "The Scheme." If you don't play "The Scheme" you don't get ice time.
But hey, if that's ok with you, have at it then.
Everyone likes to bash Brewer. But he's actually played well in the last few games, against the top lines, in which the Blues haven't given up many goals.
It's goal scoring, not the defense. If you want to blame someone from the defense, why not Roman "long shot wide" Polak.
Brewer is an easy target, but you don't win if you don't score...or at least that's what Bernie would say.
Walt looks comically slow and Brewer looks slower... but it's ok cause Brewer makes Walt look right? WTF are you saying?
Polak is +3 in 14 games... with a goal and 4 assists...averaging 20 minutes a night... Can his game improve? sure. But he's a 23 year old defenseman in his 3rd year in the league so there is still room to grow. Off to a nice start in this young season and I hope he continues to improve and Murray gives him more responsibility and Brewer less. What exactly do you want me to say about Polak?
