I'm not. This season sucks.
Somehow, we're still a one line team. Just a different line, tonight.
What is with our shootout attempts? Seriously. We can't even blame Howie for this. If we can't score a single goal with 3 shooters, what the hell is he supposed to do? Score for us?
They need to hit the road. Absolutely brutal at the Joe. Unfortunately it's a back-to-back against the Islanders who they never seem to beat.
No kidding. I'm getting real tired of Babcock and his constant attempts to just bunker up and defend for 20+ minutes whenever we get a lead. This is so pathetic.
No idea why Mule was sent out there. Datsyuk... He's tried the same move....
Give Tatar a shot... Or even Z who kinda sucks at the SO. Bert needs to change it up. Thanks Jimmy.
Question: Is Holland going to allow this team to slide into mediocrity because of his complacency or is he going to do SOMETHING?
Techincally yes. Especially after leading by two. But I guess that's the point of the thread.
Datsyuk picked up a few shootout moves from Hudler.
That's not the game plan. Not letting 40 shots a game is not bunkering up. This team has a lack of talent.
he actually said through his words and his actions its status quo
Lame coaching to have two defensemen out for a 4on3 OT PP. If you coach not to lose, you'll probably not win either.
Looked like Hank and Dats were gassed tonight. A lot of incomplete efforts from them. The only place where they really looked tight was with the extra man.
I really hope they aren't running on fumes already...
Going forward, I couldn't care less about the skills competition. The actual game itself was a tie- but you can't blow 2 goal leads.
They all try the same moves, I don't get it. It's like watching Zetterberg try his patented fake shot leg kick to backhand everytime.
I said it in the GDT, I miss when Hossa would just rip a slapper from the hash marks over the goalies shoulder. You don't have to be fancy e.g. Bertuzzi to score. Just put it in the net.
If we know what they are going to do in the shootout, you sure as **** know NHL goaltenders who watch tape know as well
right now not a very good hockey team. in fact piss poor. Quincey has to go, there can be no more excuses
I didn't think they played bad per say. But of course, adding a player like Nyquist would help this team. Jimmy needs to be better. Sammy is streets ahead of Cleary.
probably pav's worst game of the year tonite, just wasn't finishing anything
When only 1 out of 3 of the guys in the shootout would have even been credited with a shot on goal you're not likely to get 2 points.
This giving away of leads and skating away with 1 pt. is getting frustrating; could be in for a long season.
I was surprised at how good a game Tatar had.
Yeah. You get three goals from your secondary lines you should win the game.
And we are so bad at shootouts. So terribly bad.
I really think they are. For the most part they have to carry 99% of the offense on their back. It has to be tiring.
More OT/SO losses than regular losses... terrible
Cleary on top line next game. Showed grit.
Babcock gets a big old failing grade tonight, whether or not his strongest supporters want to admit it. He played bunker mentality in the third and then once again with mystifying line choices and decisions in overtime in terms of aggressiveness. We all know we're terrible at the shootout at this point, so what is Babcock playing for there?
