In Dave's defense if he is up in Portland he had to watch the game on tv We have the fortune of being local and attending a lot of the games since we are ticket holders. On television it might look like Walt was playing well because tv follows the puck (as they should because that's where most of the action is). I was not at the game last night but I do not doubt Ditka because I have seen exactly what he is talking about several times. When you are at the game you can obviously see more and notice the little things a lot easier than on tv.
Nope. I was at both games (buff and nash). Walt was ok to me...but I'm not expecting that much from him as everyone else. He was one of the few that started to bang, even though he can't skate very well anymore.
The rest of the team was terrible...worse than tkachuk. Just horrible. Especially the forwards. No skating, no hitting, no urgency. Save for Steen, this team sucks right now.
