Were it not for the fact he’s making a cubic buttload of money over the next 15 years, you’d almost feel sorry for Ilya Kovalchuk. It’s obvious that he WANTS to help his team out but the harder he tries, the worse it goes. Sort of like a Ben Stiller movie, it’s almost too embarrassing to watch.
A lot of positives for Buffalo last night, with many of the big names contributing. Derek Roy scored both in regulation and the shootout, Tyler Myers had a goal and 2 assists, and the +3 goes a long way towards getting him back where he belongs. Enroth had an up and down game but made big saves when it counted (until he didn’t have to, thanks to Kovalchuk). Is there any reason Enroth shouldn’t be the backup right now? Leggio is killing it for the Pirates (currently 7-1), so let the Williamsville native take the reins. How much of a loss is it if Lalime is lost via waivers, really?
