Exactly how I feel.

What makes it all the more ridiculous is that, considering our goalie situation (being that we don't have a legitimate NHL starter and only two prospects who can potentially step in), it's extremely important to give Backlund a fair shot, unless you're perfectly fine with rushing Bob (which the Flyers organization apparently is).

That was the worst defensive effort I've seen in forever.
I've never seen worse defensive zone coverage or even effort in any NHL game ever. Even in the pre-season.
