Babs isn't giving this team a chance with these lines he's rolling out. It started bad but it just keeps getting worse. Ericsson shouldn't still be on the top pair

Bergeron is just a poor man's Datsyuk. Pavel pretty much is better at every facet of his game

Part of the responsibility is on the forwards as well. I watch LA and they'll make 3-4 quick passes in the defensive zone and then fire up the outlet. Look and recognize the safe play that will give you space. Forwards have to be back as an option. Puck support in all three zones

To be honest I don't think we've been that bad. Smith's play was just a brain fart, an attempted quick pass for a forward but nobody was supporting. Howard had plenty of time and Kronwall just has to stay on his feet. We had time to make a play just goofed it

I do agree we don't handle a tough forecheck well. You can tell the wings are playing well when they're making those quick one touch passes to break down the forecheck. They made a lot of smart plays like that against Boston, not so much against Anaheim

I like that kronwall addressed that he needs to stay on his feet there. The defense in general was a level better against the Bruins although DD has been nothing but solid both games. Ericsson's play has been concerning

I can't really blame Howard for the last two goals it's just frustrating because one way or another the guy just can't get it done. He's paid a lot of money to win games. I'll be the first guy to say he played great if he did but I haven't seen a 5M dollar goalie performance out of him these first two games

Howard makes a big timely save every 5 games

I blame Howard the most for this loss. The one gimmie goal was completely on him and it seemed like the ducks only had 3 good scoring chances all of which went in. Against Bostom we were dominating and he gives up one on the first shot. It's so deflating it effects the whole team

I'm starting to really resent Howard. He seems like a good guy but that contract is ridiculous and there's no way any of his teammates can have any sort of confidence in him. 1 good/decent game 5 bad ones repeat.

with such a great effort the margin of winning shouldn't have been so close but that's Howard's fault. If we had a goalie with any kind of mental toughness we win this game

Stick handling takes practice. Spend a summer working on it and this doesn't happen every 5 games

Good start. Looks like we're skating well again


#2538494 What did the preseason show us?

Posted by joesuffP on 06 October 2014 - 07:00 AM

We need a miracle to make the playoffs because we have the same team as last year? We made the playoffs last year and the division looks about the same.

There's one thing being realistic, but being completely negative about everything is just annoying.

Smith has looked solid
