Agreed. Our biggest problem is the lack of offense overall, and once again we are back to two goal or less for the 13th time in 16 games. Two goals from our bottom six, which is even worse when you consider half of our regular d-men and Dustin Penner still also don't have a goal. Once again tonight, Richards, Doughty, Johnson and Kopitar contributed all of the offense.

No wonder their fans are that way they are brainwashed by those homers. ...deep breath..they are worse than Hayward. No kidding.

visiting Canucks fans here in the GDT have been ..alright.
I agree. Nucks announcers are generally really annoying and homers. The worst that I have ever seen though is Bruins announcers. Some Detroit games can be really bad as well, especially in the playoffs, where it seems like they grow to hate an opposing player even more than the Wings themselves as the series goes along.

Some might not like the cap hit, but I like Umberger and Vermette, but the most likely target would be Prospal, likely cheaper to acquire to and we could certainly use the offense. I hope we avoid Carter/Nash simply for the ridiculous price that I'm sure they will want.

He has 11 points in 14 games thus far. If the Kings don't have long term plans for Brad Richardson, it only makes sense to make a one-for-one swap for Prospal.
If you were Columbus, would you take Brad Richardson for your leading scorer? At the deadline, if he keeps this pace up, Prospal would net a 2nd + at least, possibly a 1st depending on the market. No way I'd move him for just Richardson if I'm Columbus, especially the way Richardson has played this season.
