I'm not sure that's an indication of how poorly those three have played, or a desire to get some fresh legs into the line-up. Whatever the case I hope the U.S. comes out better tonight than they have in the past couple games.
I think it's more of the latter. You can't scratch everyone that played poorly; they don't have enough guys in the press box to do that. Wilson said he wanted to shake up the team, and scratching one of the best guys to ever play for Team USA (Hull) would do that.
Sportsnet is saying that Weinrich and Liles are out too....
So Paul Martin is playing for sure.
Sorry, here's the link
yeah Martin is in to replace Liles.
Amonte probably won't be playing either, he's too busy still looking for his underwear that Kovalev took from him last night!
Full Devil lineup of Gomez, Rafalski, Martin, and Langs in at once
I wonder what Hull is going to say.
i heard klee is playing 2nite as well
Ok now youve you done it USA ..whos Hull gonna jump to now ????? Sweden ,Russia ,Finland ????
With three games in 4 days, I think this move is hardly Wilson trying to make a statement. He obviously wants to give these guys a rest. It's almost certain that they'll draw either Russia or Canada in the medal round now, so there's probably no point in either tiring out these players or risking the possibility of one getting injured. I wouldn't read into this all that much. If Doug Wilson wanted to bench players who deserve it, he would be wise to start with Chris Chelios.
So, don't read into this too much. If you look at the most current TSN link regarding the issue, Doug Wilson even reveals his motives in quotes. Robert Esche is getting a rest also.
He should have benched Drury, he's played terribly.
