why do players on this team get rewarded for horrible play, while others, such as gus, get shafted for playing with heart :ranting:

Wings are showing no spirit. Still asleep. Hope they are all practicing their "that was embarrassing" post-game speech. From the look of it they have been practicing it since the secondf****** goal.

Let Conklin walk home. This is an absolute disgrace. And this is a team that Ken Holland thinks is a contender?



Maybe it's because Holland has been living in Cinderellaville with fairy dust snow storms for the last few years.

It is obvious they are taking the night off, they slapped the Jackets around on Monday, skated circles around them but sometimes they just don't care and that is annoying

Holmstrom is beyond brutal.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

It's actually Ken Holland's fault for the defensive miscues and horrifying goaltending.

Tell me about it. Gus plays with heart every shift but it's okay, we've got Johan back to beast it up with his amazing, inspirational effort levels.

Franzen is playing?

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

B-b-but... Franzen is the leading goal-scorer, clutch in the playoffs. Bertuzzi had 4 points last night. Hudler has a career high in goals./sarcasm

I'm with you. Passengers dragging down contributors. Might as well play workers with other workers, and let the floaters skate with the mites during intermission.

geez...i didn't know franzen was back :ph34r: that is to say he's been fairly invisible. Z, Bert and Nyquist have been the best wings so far. our D has been the s***s and conklin is a lugnut.

Its not the playoffs yet, he is waiting for playoffs to contribute. He is bored. :ph34r:

Even though the team is playing like crap, Conks isn't doing himself any favors. If this was Ozzie in net, this GDT would be 30 pages long already. I guess you really can't be too hard on a guy who belongs in GR., but he's stinking it up tonight.

The biggest issue I have besides the obvious lack of effort is the changing of a dominant winning lineup from the other night. Franzen is back but bury him down the lineup a bit and let Gus play on the 1st line where he was the other night. Leave Kindl in and let Ericsson watch from the press box for a few games until Kindl f***s up.

Sign me up for a cold, coming back from injury Jimmy Howard in goal Friday over Conklin.

I get Babcock's philosophy, but home ice may be at stake and this team clearly needs it. Let Jimmy play if he says he is healthy enough. Conklin's numbers speak for themselves.

No player is ever dead to me but he is hurting my feelings quite a bit. WAKE THE HELL UP.

Yeah, he's really the 3rd string goalie. Whatdya gonna do...
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...
