Boring certainly describes some of the games. Painful or frustrating are the words I've used more often though. Whether it be the parade of talent on this team that cannot finish worth a damn, or the ridiculous amount of low-percentage perimeter shot-taking.
Puck possession time has improved significantly. We should be scoring more, but we're not.
To answer the OP's question - it's because the players have been underachieving so badly. As Jaygokings said, some of the talent on the ice have been total disappointments this season so far. It's causing Dean to have to change coaches and probably make more trades to deal with a problem the players on the roster today should be able to fix themselves.
The shining star has been team D, although the cornerstone of that D, Quick, is being overplayed. It's not surprising given Sutter rode his #1's hard before, but we've all seen how a fatigued Quick plays in the postseason from 2 seasons ago. I sure hope Quick is able to play effectively with about 10 more regular season games under his belt than last season. He's well on that pace now. Again, frustrating. Those who don't learn from prior mistakes...
