And where are the Sedin brothers by the way?  This is my problem, if you’re the best player in the sport, shouldn’t I be able to see you, be the best player?  I haven’t seen these guys do anything yet.  I don’t even think they’re the best players on their own team.

Patrick must’ve missed the first two games of this series.

All it takes is one power play goal in the second period last night by Vancouver’s first unit and a mainstream chatterbox crosses the possiblity of bringing this up off of his list.

Patrick was all over Crosby’s minus numbers in the 08 and 09 finals, yep.

While he isn’t a hockey mind, there is some truth to what he says. He just didn’t back it up.

The Sedins have produced, but the majority of their production is on the power play. They are not producing even strength. They most definitely are not the dominating duo they were in the regular season. And they most certainly are not making up for their lack of even strength production with defense.

The have shown flashes of their brilliance, but they need more than flashes if they are the two best players on their team.

You can avoid the media altogether by just watching who the coach puts out on the ice in the last 3 minutes of the 3rd period in a one goal game.
