Yes, Brock because you are such a great two way player. Learn to keep your mouth shut. :scowl:
I am pretty sure it was said sarcastically. Boeser has a dry sense of humour

Could have been I guess. I haven’t ever heard a player do that to another teammate at a presser/ conference call before. I haven’t seen Boeser really throw a bunch of humorous, sarcastic jabs before. Then again maybe I’m not paying attention. Just seems to me everyone likes to take a pound of flesh from Virtanen

When I heard what Brock said I took it as a self-criticism. That the three of them have to play better defensively, because they blew it against Pittsburg last time they were together. Twitterverse is overreacting to his comment. As soon a something is said about Jake the media likes to pounce.

Tempest in a teapot. This is why players offer up so many canned plastic comments in media interviews. I'll take it for good-natured ribbing at best, or honest self-criticism at worst like Cherry Picker said.

But Boeser is right isn’t he. Jake isn’t exactly stalwart defensively
DOYLE WOULD’VE RATHER HAD KEVIN HAYES AT 7 YEARS 7 MILLION PER INSTEAD OF J.T. MILLER FOR A LATE 1ST RD PICK

Passionate hysteria for dramatic effect.
Let’s get this season starter right. :D

Neither of them are. If it’s sarcastic its hilarious. Maybe the whole team has had enough of Shaggy Horse Jake. Whooping it up at the gay establishments in town, taking selfie’s while driving, crushing pints and Big Macs like there’s no tomorrow. He’s officially the whipping boy. :lol:

That’s not what I heard Brock say. I thought he was saying Petey, Brock and Jake were not good defensively against Pittsburg, for one game, all three players. He wants the line to be better defensively tonight. They are probably going head-to-head with McDavid, so defensive responsibility is on his mind, and he also wants his line-mates thinking about that responsibility.

As to your second point, when he is on his game, I’ve seen Jake play well defensively. IMO often better than Brock, but not as consistently as Miller. We’ll see how he does defensively tonight, but yah whipping-boy is a fairly accurate description. But remember, Gretzky was Glen Sather’s whipping-boy, so there’s that.

Your right. It was a crappy statement. Whether it's accurate or not is not really the point. Actually surprised he said that.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

That's too bad about LE. He'll be more likely to see some games for sure now. Thought he would be on the taxi squad. None the less, this roster set-up was probably a culmination of both Travis and Jim. The reports on his training camp were all over the place. From terrible to good.

Unless he's last net minder standing and wins game four in the finals vs the Leaves and hoists the Stanley Cup.
