Keeping this up for the sake of stability behind the bench is like rejoicing when you lose 10 games in a row because it's consistency.
You keep saying this team is underachieving, but really, where did you expect them to be??..they're tied with 3 other teams for the 6th spot. Granted we played more games, but still, as of today it's a tie.
If you consider the numerous injuries we've suffered, it's a miracle we're still even battling for a POs spot.
Maybe you had too high expectations earlier and thought we'd be a top 6 team, but I didn't and especially not after losing Markov to a serious injury in Game 1.
Why can't you just see that we're simply not that good??..
We have an aging and slow defense. Spacek that should have been our best defensive signal has had difficulty adjusting to play on the right side. Gill and Mara are slow.
We've had trouble finding a top 6 player all year whether it's due to bad play or injuries. Right now, we have a bottom six with no defined role. We do not have a checking line. We do not have an energy line. Our top players are all small with the exception of Pouliot (A.Kost being injured). Small and not superstars might I add.
Maybe Martin should put Lappy/Metro/Moen together, make it our checking line and just roll 3 lines all the time. But this would fatigue even more the team that has played the most games in the NHL.
