Or how about the "they will flip the switch" thread from last season. But honestly, it is hard as a big fan of your team to watch your team give up 4+ goals every single game. Not going to blame it on Breezy, but his last four games he has given up 19 goals...19...
Now I know 18 or whatever some people are saying goals arent his fault but we still have some major problems right now and if it doesnt get fixed, we could be in for a LONGGGG season.
Fail for Nail?
I just can't get over the hilarity.
Either way, unlike 2006 we have talent that can compete at the NHL level. This isn't a problem of having too many people who can't play in a post-lockout NHL. This is a problem where the team isn't communicating properly. 99% of the problem is getting the puck out of the zone. That's a breakdown in communication between the defensemen, forwards, and sometimes the goaltender. Typical growing pains of a reinvented roster. There's no reason to panic just yet.
I recommend not getting overly worked up about it. I consider any playoff success this year a legitimate bonus. This team was built for 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, etc. I want to win this year. I think we have an outside if not legitimate shot should our team gel. That said, it's best not to get worked up and upset. We all knew what this was long before we started the season 4-0-1. Let's relax.
