Yeah, it's a lesser league and yeah, they are playing in front of very sparse crowds for the most part so it's hard to get up for these games but there is an attitude problem (sense of entitlement) if they are just cruising through this league because they think they are above it or are worried about getting injured because they might lose out on precious NHL time if/when it comes back.
What they are doing is wasting time taking jobs from players who are hungry to play at the AHL level and would be more than glad to get that opportunity.
It's still early in the season but the excuses are starting to run dry. It seems that they might very well be in OKC the entire season and perhaps longer so it's time to take the league seriously otherwise, they are just wasting important development time. BTW, i'm not including Hall in this since he has a legit excuse coming off of an injury.
While a lot of this is true, it's not just the kids that are playing poor right now. It's nearly the entire team.
It sucks that they are taking jobs from people that could be playing in OKC, but it's not like there are are even a handful of players playing better than them right now.
