Patrick O’Sullivan plays the easiest of defensive positions, the wing, and yet he leads the team in defensive errors. This guy is leaking goals. Now, I’ve had a few folks tell me I’m too hard on him, and I should be patient, he’ll start scoring.
Let me make this clear — I’m not so worried about his lack of production. I’m sure he’ll score more (especially if he’s again put on a line with Anze Kopitar).
But this leaking of goals against, it has to do with a lack of effort, a lack of hockey acumen, a lack of fight, and it’s got to stop, and I won’t be letting up on Mr. O’Sullivan until he picks it up in this regard.
