And posters will say there's no d men available by trade but 3 d-men have been moved this year and I think that we had the pieces available to acquire all 3.
I wonder if this has anything to do with the coach.
I like Renney but the guy shows 0 emotion.
When Petrell was obviously tripped and Sedin went on to score the 2-0 goal he should have been livid with the ref who blew the call.
At least if your players see that you give a **** then they'll give a ****. Get fired up, get angry, show SOME emotion - Renney looks a cyborg at the best of times.
After seeing 24/7 and a guy behind the bench like Laviolette, its night and day for what we have. With Oil change you get some insight into the coach/player relationship and Renney looks like a zombie compared to most of the other coaches in the NHL. The ones who get consistent effort out of their team anyway.
