There was plenty to be annoyed about in game one of the 2013 NHL season if you're a Montreal Canadiens fan. P.K. Subban is still on the sidelines, the team lost, the game was boring, and it some questionable coaching decisions occurred.
We don't have automated scripts giving us advanced stats yet, but it seems like Tomas Plekanec's like was used in the offensive zone instead of David Desharnais'. When you compound that by taking Subban away from them, it's no wonder Desharnais, along with Max Pacioretty and Erik Cole, looked sluggish and out of sorts. They weren't being played to their strengths as a line.
