Look vaunt the names all you like but the offense hasn't set the world on fire and is being held back by the defense. The complete lack of compete is a boat anchor on this team. Your best player cannot be a young #2/3 tweener center night in and night out. Eriksson, Whitney, Ryder, and Jagr have all mailed it in on one night or another and we're only 6 games in. If talent doesn't work hard nothing is going to be accomplished.
Between the mental errors, the lack of physical fight for the puck, the penalty parade and poor coaching talent will only take us back to that lovely 8-14th draft pick. Gulutzan is holding this team back but some of those veterans aren't helping the cause and the kids are going through the normal young player growing pains exacerbated by the abject fear that if they screw up they'll be in the press box tomorrow while their older teammates get away with murder.
Hopefully Benn will help but anyone who's expecting playoffs from this team was and is sorely mistaken.
