Maybe we will win a game next week. :lol:

Not a bad game, Anaheim missing their top 3 forwards and still beat us, but eh. 

Til next time LGW!

This is exactly what I was thinking heading into this game.  This isn't even Anaheim, but unfortunately for us this IS the wings.  Weve looked ok at times the past two games but our forward core really does suck at generating any sustained offence.  Our young D core has some things to work out but they look good, Cholowski looks like a step in the right direction to me...Here's hoping they can pull together a win soon time!

Im with you. Im a bit over the whole were stacked at forward and decimated at D narrative as of these first few games.

I see a team that can defend okish, tranisition the puck up the ice okish, but cannot sustain any pressure in the O zone whatsoever. Its pathetic and boring hockey.

I offer no solutions to this, only complaints. Perhaps weve overestimated the talent and potential of some of our forwards.

How many times do I have to say it?  Abdelkader, Nielsen, and Nyquist SUCK.  These guys have ZERO pace.  Sure, Nyquist scores 40 pts when he gets 19 minutes, 1st unit pp time, and a hall of fame center.  BFD.  So does every NHL player.  Phil Kessel gets 70-80 pts and is a constant scoring threat.  That's what we need.  Hopefully, this is our last season of watching #14.  I'm ready for #11 now.

A new coach would go a long way to fix that

A new coach would all of a sudden change the skill level of forwards?  Yes, it's Blashill's fault this team doesn't have a Mathews, Laine, McDavid, Eichel, Hall, Kucherov, MacInnon, Kane, Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, etc etc etc etc etc

I say, a continuation of hard-core losing, trading, and good drafting over the next 2-3 years is the real answer to that problem. But, keep banging that drum all you want..........

Agree with you 100%. Try replacing your direct boss' new hire that he put under you with your guy and see what happens.  

 

Ken: We just signed Abdelkader for 4 mil per.  

 

Jeff: I'm going to play Turgeon instead.

 

Ken: Please welcome our new interim coach, Kris Draper.

 

Kris: Hi, I'm Buhkwheet, Uhmemba meee?

Maybe Gus needs to go on a hot dog diet?

Half the problems are system related and non existent in game adjustments by Blashill.  Same as every year he's been coach

Holland doesn't pull that, it's one of the few things I still like about him.  And he doesn't have to bench Abdelkader, just play him on a checking line

Perhaps its the off season or the beer, but before the season started I remember thinking how this team could offensively surprise a lot of people...THEN the season started, yes it's early but 4 losses in a row speaks volumes and I don't see it getting much better.  I also don't always appreciate how Blashill builds his lines, perhaps he could hire blueadams as his go to lines guy....
