    This was the argument prior to 2011. it helps significantly to draft at the top of the correct draft and get a generational player but as we've seen time an time again it is NOT needed. In fact, more often then not, drafting that high goes all for nothing.

    Ask Edm, NYI, Clb, Ari, fla, Tor, Col, Cal, etc.

    The schedule gets really hard starting now. I said 3-10 or something like 3-9-1 or 3-8-2 over the last 12. Carolina won't be as easy the next time in Raleigh. If they get points out of either games against a stacked Pittsburgh or desperate St. Louis who is playing for their playoff lives, we have a tanking problem. Otherwise, just sit back, relax and, enjoy the tank.

    Or, do they have a good coach that is guiding them in the right (oops, I mean wrong) direction? Know what I mean?

    Does this also mean that AV is a good coach that doesn't know how to lose correctly? Lmao

    Yeah, his linemates are just "spoon-fed" goals. It's like he has some magic on his stick that somehow always leads to goals. It's been crazy, as I could see in advance that we are going to score soon.

    If Gorton got only futures for our players, they would be much worse. Spooner and Vlad are legit NHL players.

    I think u read it correctly. Even though I know it's best for the organization to lose MUCH MORE than win at this point, still and all I don't want a 14 game losing streak or something similar. Keeping the Carolina streak alive and other good things last night is keeping it fresh, so to speak.

    You can get away with that amount of shots against a team like Carolina. That’s not a good approach against the of the Pens, Caps, Flyers or TB.

    Lets hope the oilers can win a 3 point game tonight (calgary) and again tomorrow night. They could actually just be a point behind us. The Canadiens, ottawa, Detroit and vancouver are just much better tanks than us. we can not catch them lol

    As much as I'd prefer our team to lose [I can't root for it], I still get excited when they score and win. This is tough on the emotions. LOL!!

    Absolutely totally agree. Hard to fight our instincts to see some of our guys score some goals and see some good vibes on this team. I have a much easier time just watching and rooting for teams like the oilers, blackhawks, montreal and detroit to win. hopefully, miraculously they can catch us.

    At least he's good for putting "something" in, if not pucks. But yeah, good on you Jimbo! And yeah, he has one of those faces you just want to pummel, even though I'm not much of a fighter, Lol

    Or, an empty netter. Don't forget that excuse either. Why do people hate on him so badly? He is what he is, a college player that is just really getting his feet wet and finding his game that relates to the NHL. Isn't he on the same path as Hayes? Look at where Kevin is going now. Maybe Vesey will really get it all together this time next year, as Hayes is doing now. Give the guy a break already. I suppose people wanted him to be a 40 goal scorer (yeah, so did I.......but I'm a little more realistic and understanding, I guess)

    Just really makes one wonder as to WHY these players that are now "stepping up", weren't doing so when we had these "best players". Can't be just the ice time. Think more it's "wanting to be the man" and replacing the big names of McD, Grabs and Nasher. Yeah, and for more money on the table for them to grab.
    Pride? Does that play a part? I mean, who likes losing? Can't let Hank know you don't mind it. Death stare a coming!
    Make no mistake about Spooner, Names are easily out producing what just left.

    God I hate the Pens, but for the 1st time in a very long while, II won't mind losing to them. It is a necessary evil. I simply don't want to be embarrassed. I'd take a 6-5 loss, where we get some nice offensive goals, (maybe a couple of ppg's) expecting 45+shots against, but want our goalie to play well despite the 6ga.

    AV throwing shade at Lundqvist or something else going on...

    Funny thing about these past two games against Florida and Carolina is that even though they're both in the running for a playoff spot you can easily see that they are not even vaguely at the same level as a team like Tampa
