Wednesday's Dump & Chase: ENOUGH

New, comments

Craig Smith has scored 2 goals since October 20th. Colin Wilson scored his only goal of the season around that time (and he's hurt now). Teams are keying in on James Neal and Filip Forsberg, so the depth scoring has to do something. And bless him, Viktor Arvidsson is doing his best to create some chaos out there. So after last night's crummy result, we should expect an angry team on Thursday. It's warranted.
