You're joking, right?

It's unacceptable to let any NHL player step over the blue line and into the slot unimpeded.

If you can't stop a guy who has two goals in 40 games from stepping into the slot like that, are you going to be able to stop a guy who gets 15 goals in 40 games? What about 20 goals in 40 games? They were exposed against a guy who can't produce at all this season, isn't that pathetic in itself?

The defense has a problem with closing the gap, and an even bigger problem with completely giving up the blue line. Opposing players enter the zone at full speed and step around the defense. What's even worse is the Flyers completely **** up positioning and defensive decisions. They constantly misplay odd-man rushes, often allowing the shot to come from the slot.

Stajan's having a bad season. It doesn't mean he doesn't know how to put the puck in the net. He's in the NHL for a reason.

That goal said a lot more about our defense than it does about Stajan or Bryz, but hey, let's just keep looking at the net. I mean, that's where the puck ends up, right?
