Because he's as soft mentally as he is physically, scared to **** up.
Last 20 games, Monahan has 6 5v5 points
Stajan has 7
This team is done.
Good to see the young forward #core stepping up in crunch time as always and finding that extra gear.
Gaudreau has been cold but he gets a pass...he carries the team all year.
What about Monahan, Bennett, Ferland....etc bunch of coat tail clowns
No, we needed 2 points tonight. Plain and simple. A 2 on 0 in OT should be a guaranteed win 110% of the time. Instead, Gaudreau doesn't even hit the net. So no, 1 point tonight is not ok.
Yeah, the fork can be firmly stuck in.
Lack was and still is, much, much worse than Gillies or Rittich.
I thought the Flames were good tonight. With Rittich or Smith in net that's a win.
Lack was hung out to dry hard in the games he played. If this team played competently when he was there, he'd still be here. Would rather have him than be ruining Rittich's and Gillies' confidence
It would have been a great game in November. Hell we would all be fist pumping taking a point on the road in Pittsburgh back then.
But losing that point in OT really hurts.
Even if he always planned on shooting it seems to make more sense to wait to make Jarry at least think about Monahan, not sure how a shot before Monahan is even in position to use a fake makes much sense.
Remember when OT seemed like a guaranteed win?
Yeah the Flames shouldn’t be exposing Gillies or Rittich to this on a regular basis. They should sign Ramo to a deal for the remainder of the season. Neither of these kids should be receiving a ton of blame, the Flames are a vulnerable team right now not playing good hockey and we aren’t making the playoffs. They should be protected so we don’t have happen to them what happened to Irving.
With Smith yes, Rittich has been just as bad as Gillies if not worse.
Meh, 5 game winning streak on tap after that effort. That'll put us only 2-3 pts out I imagine
Rittich has been excellent in 11 of 13 starts. If the goalie we got @Colorado were playing tonight, we probably lead all night.
That sucks, since we are currently 3 points out.
Excellent in 11 out of 13?
Why does everything have to be so over the top with the guys you love?
He wasn't excellent in his last game against Colorado or LV or Florida or Nashville or Edmonton. He also hasn't been anything close to excellent any time he has come in the middle of a game.
I am so disappoint
We need a big run. This is a bonafide cup contender if we get in. Otherwise it's a wasted season.
Rittich is 25 years old with plenty of pro experience in Europe and the AHL, he was our back-up this year and part of a back-ups job is to fill in when the starter is injured. If he can't handle this then we should be looking to move on from him not shelter him and bring in another guy.
You can keep believing that but it doesn't make it true.
Bonafide Cup contender?
We would have a weaker roster than any team outside of maybe Vegas in the Western Conference. We routinely have two lines that provide nothing at all and a top line that while good isn't a step above other play-offs teams top lines.
This is not a Kings like team with elite talent that can get in and cause issues this is a mediocre team that is right where it belongs based on the talent on the roster.
