    G:
    Dahlin
    Hutton made some big saves early
    Beaulieu gets a goal
    Casey hit a post
    Eichel's pass on the no-goal

    B:
    The team's will to battle looking like 17-18 again.
    I have two theories: A) They're coached to be in a certain position, and not attack the puck, and that's stupid. B) The same characters that led last year showing no drive, and are right back at it

    U:
    Eichel
    Okposo
    Housley
    Nelson
    The Powerplay
    The Compete
    Colorado's puck luck, before this game got out of hand


    Note:

    Eichel-Reinhart-Sheary didn't get a shift in the final 4 minutes.

    Missing out on McDavid ruined this franchise

    Eichel is nowhere near the generational talent everyone thought he was. sorry

    Real shame these guys have to overcome the inept management of the team.
    Not sure how many drafts and players they need to acquire to be a good team again but it won't be led by who is running the show now.
    G: Dahlin looked rock solid again.
    B: Players forcing plays without the talent to back them up.
    U: All the selfish turnover's.

    He’s the only guy on the whole team who can score with any regularity. Not sure how you can pin this mess on him. How does McDavid save this team?

    Super Ugly:

    Phil trying to cheat the PP after putting Reinhart in the box. He puts out the top line with 14 seconds left and gets scored on.

    You.... are.... bad.... Housley.

    6th year in a row where our game plan is to hold on for dear life at even strength while we dive our way to the powerplay. Watching this team 5 on 5 is suicide inducing.

    This team still has a few issues. Biggest issue is our defense is still bad. So many failed opportunities to break the puck out and instead we turn it over and get counter attacked.

    Dahlin was great tonight. The way he took space from both Landeskog and Mackinnon was great to see.

    We need a top 4 defense partner for Dahlin

    X-Dahlin - 25 minutes
    Scandella-Risto - 20 minutes
    McCabe-Bogosian 15 minutes

    Larsson should be waived. He can’t play at this level at a required level.

    We need Casey to be a top 6 center

    We need Okposo gone. Unreal Phil doesn’t have our best player on the #1 pp.

    Pominville can retire. He won’t be in the NHL next year.

    Tage still has potential but needs to go work in the AHL.

    ERod needs more minutes. He can bring offense.

    Sheary-Eichel-Reinhart
    Skinner-Mittelstadt-Rodrigues
    Ellie-Berglund-Okposo
    Girgensons-Sobotka-Pominville

    McCabe-Dahlin
    Scandella-Ristolainen
    Beaulieu-Bogosian

    Why take Eichel off his off wing on the PP?
    So dumb

    Because the league is getting younger and faster. No place for Okposo, Pominville, Larsson, Girgensons, Nelson, Beaulieu.
    McCabe and Scandella are close as well.

    Guess we are hoping to slow cook our prospects this season in Rochester and rolling this sad sack group out.

    How does Okposo stay on the PP1?
    Seriously. Sad.

    He's one of the best forwards in the league at 21 years old

    Let's have some perspective here. Even if what you say is true (which I don't agree with), you don't need McDavid to be a good team. We have the talent to be a contender in the next 3-5 years if we can get some decent coaching and proper development.

    I think you can say many things about Phil, but I don't think this is fair.

    Missed the game, but I'm glad Dahlin grabbed an assist.

    On to the next one.

    If they really wanted to cleanse the locker room they should have canned Housley.
