    Vegas has 4 high danger chances and when I watched them none of them were that dangerous and has scored 6 5on5 goals.

    I think he's trying to teach us a lesson: never want nice things.

    No it isn't. TB has a better core and there are others out there as well.

    I hate GG and thinks he needs to be fired but there are more issues with this team than just the coach. There are big time roster holes.

    At least their moms are there to make them some hot cocoa and butter them up after.

    Agreed BT may escape but he should be part of the blame

    Flawed roster + coach that cant manage the game = disaster

    The game isn’t all on Rittich but I think he had a pretty bad night.

    Well 1st off the core you listed is way too big in my view.

    Boston, Toronto, Winnipeg, Pittsburgh, Washington, St. Louis, Nashville, Anaheim are all easy teams right off the top of my head. Likely a lot of other teams that if not better aren't any worse.

    Well, most nights 3 goals (4 if Mony's wasn't called off) can get you a win.

    But letting in 7 will rarely get you one.

    Versteeg's injury and Jagr riding off into the sunset has hurt this team a lot more than people admit. Trade for a scorer now or this season will be a write off by mid-March

    I feel like this team is much closer to this point than we think. A sizeable gap is starting to form now between us and the Sharks and Kings for a divisional spot. The Wildcard teams are within reach, but for how much longer? This team needs a big streak, like now

    I think the season is already a write off

    The Flames should be a seller and try to get the pick back

    We are absolutely at serious risk of missing the playoffs at this point.

    I hope our line looks like this:

    Gaudreau-Monahan-Ferland
    Tkachuk-Backlund-Frolik
    Bennett-Jankowski-Dano
    Aberg-Lazar-Hathaway

    Giordano-Hamilton
    Brodie-Hamonic
    Kulak-Andersson

    By trade deadline.

    Meh, a similar gap has existed between teams in this division at several points in time during this season, and things will probably keep fluctuating back and forth down the stretch. Everyone should prepare themselves mentally for that, because from what I've seen, it's going to be very difficult for a lot of fans to deal with.

    You're right, though, the team needs a streak, but that's always been the case. We probably will get another one. Just need to avoid the streaks the other way more than anything.

    I think you got that part correct except it's more of mentally accept that this season is a waste. Do you really trust this team can win when it really counts? They have not done so all season...not going to happen now, especially with a backup (bad) goalie.
