we do appreciate the kind words. the problem is..with the way we're playing right now, no game is "winnable." it would be one thing if we were playing our hearts out, every game..but even coach horachek said, in between periods,

"This team isn't playing with desperation or heart. They're treating this like any other game, not a game that they need in a push to make the playoffs"

That's been the story for a while now. We came back with one good effort in Calgary..and then laid this egg. We didn't turn it on until late. It's extremely frustrating and disheartening. The blues might be underperforming, but no one is underperforming worse than us. Some team is going to get in by default because we'll play ourselves out of the spot.
