Ok thanks. I'll probably wait until it gets closer to the season then. They will probably have a deal on.

Fixed.



Strikethroughs don't get it done.  You and you and you and you are all in violation of copyright and, mark my words, there WILL be hell to pay.*

Hainsey vs Zaitsev analysis.

Zaitsev's defensive flaws are well known: he got swamped at times under the workload he was given; he was tentative at the blueline (played it 'safe'), leading to sustained DZ time.

Hainsey is slated to play with Rielly (kind of like Zaitsev was supposed to play with Hunwick, right?); his skill set is nearly the opposite. They're both quite mobile, but Hainsey uses it for gap-closing disruption defence, rather than any offence whatsoever. While his numbers look poor, I believe Zaitsev's skating ability will show better next year when he's not so conservative.

Here's Zaitsev marking Ovechkin (video).

Having the two split the heavy minutes with their respective partners could go a long way. Since Babcock doesn't trust Carrick for some reason, it'll be good to get Gardiner more elite minutes.
