Fletcher keeps saying one thing but doing another. He knows he's under the gun to do something with this organization but he doesn't know what.

Our youth movement isn't going to replace Brunette or even Mitts.
I couldn't help but laugh out loud at that statement. Just because somewhere had a plan, that didn't work and is now changing his strategy doesn't mean he doesn't have a plan. Not to mention it's very difficult to have a step by step plan with something like this because there are far too many variables. You have to have a very loose idea of what you're going to do, he had that when he came in. He thought we were closer to the playoffs than we were. Now he's trying to get younger and big some more skill in through the pipe lines. Still a plan. So I don't know how you can say that the man doesn't have a plan. Must be the sunglasses.

Um, we have no goal scorers for...the 3rd year in a row. We might not be the least talented but we have been on the bottom of the barrel for scoring goals for almost 5 years running.
Check this out: http://espn.go.com/nhl/statistics/te...s/seasontype/2
Look what teams are less than 10 goals ahead of us. Playoff teams like the Kings, Canadiens, and the Preds. Sure we'd all loves to score 400 goals in a season but what matters is winning. Which entails scoring more goals than the other team. So if we're not scoring an abundance of goals, we need to do 2 things. Score more goals, easier said than done. Or have the other team score less goal. This doesn't mean that you need to trap and blah blah blah, it just means you need to be more responsible defensively.
