Video- Eddie Lack You Are On Alert

Bill Peters after practice today.

 

 

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,

Carolina Hurricanes coach Bill Peters has done an admirable job of not publicly showing irritation or frustration, which he calls the “F-word,” during what has fast become a challenging season.

But some of that appeared to leak out of him Friday, when a question was raised about goalies Cam Ward and Eddie Lack and whether the last 20-some games of the season would be a “competition” between the two to see who plays the majority of the games.

Peters was mindful that Ward has played in 49 games and Lack in 10, and that Lack allowed four goals on 16 shots Wednesday in the 4-3 overtime loss to Tampa Bay. Lack, who missed much of the season with concussion issues, has a 3.33 goals-against average in his 10 games and a .873 save percentage.

“Well, you’ve got to push,” Peters said. “One guy has played 10 games. Eddie has played 10 games and was poor in his last outing, let’s not kid ourselves, right? There were 16 shots, four went in. Not good enough. You look at his numbers in the league, they’re not good enough.

It couldn’t possibly be the super-young defense that’s in front of those goalies, or that they were giving Ron $#&*%($# Hainsey the ice time they were because they had no other options…

Bottom in the NHL in salary cap spent and projected over 16M space by season end lol.

Talented d-man group down there and young oh yes and most of team other than Staal up front don’t make much of an effort playing defense.
