    Every time Mcleod is on ice...why is he even here? Total waste of a roster spot.

    He's objectively awful. Even at fighting (anymore).

    As I said... brutal goaltending and Hall soft on the puck in NZ.

    not sure about brutal goaltending. Andersen's first goal was bar-down. not easy for a goalie to stop

    For the sake of a nice debate here, I'd like to introduce exhibit A to the jury: First clip in the video below shows McDavid beating a goaltender in a very similar manner tp what Lias did.
    Pete, McD's flying, so he's creating space on his own, but he gets in tight and snaps the puck over the G's glove, almost exactly like what Andersson did last night. What's your take on the McD goal?

    His presence is baffling. I can't think of a player more obviously over the hill on our roster in ages. Call it "Gorton's Folly."

    Thanks for the tip! A good Brooks article with some good quotes and interesting info. Lias and ADA were so good last night they inspired me to start a thread about standout play (especially the guys here a year or less) during these preseason games. I'll post some of this article over there.

    Bad goaltending lol. McD couldn't cut to the middle, the D was bearing down on him. No reason for Smith to leave the post that early.

    Also a pretty big difference seeing McDavid coming down... And Lias Andersson.
