Face it, we're not likely to win the Cup this year, just really don't have enough talent. I know people get on Torts for playing this grinding style, but if they opened up the ice and tried to win every game 5-4, they'd lose more than they win.

Team is just like a racehorse running out of gas at the top of the stretch. I wouldn't even try to hold off Pittsburgh, just get everyone ready for the playoffs.

I thought the defense played well today, except Bickel needs to sit against teams with speed, he looked like a statue on the first goal. Whoever said McD was awful is smoking something, he controlled the game, had an assist, drew penalties, etc.

And I think it is possible to have puck possession lines and still have some grinders on the team, but I agree, we don't have the talent to play like Detroit yet, not even close.
