The problem starts with.....goaltending

Now they are FAR from the only reason we are losing right now, but look at their sv %, GAA and watch the eye test and Backstrom continues to fail so miserably I'm so sick of him. He's the guy I'd be shoppingly for anything desperately. It's not just that he gives up the bad goals, it's when he does. Tonight there is NO excuse for letting Burrows weak shot on the backhand off into a rebound in the slot for the Sedin sister. In Phoenix there is NO excuse for the Hanzal eventual game winner and that rebound. There are only two games where Backs hasn't given up terrible rebounds and that has been Chicago of which he came in cold and Anahiem of which he had no chance on those goals. All the other games he has AT best been average.

And i'm sorry Harding for you personally, but you sir have been equally no better and for years now rightly or wrongly have failed every chance to become a starter in this league.

I am telling you right now this team does not become a true playoff contender until it solidifies itself (like all the great teams do) from the nets on out, and we won't see that happening until at the earliest Hackett and Kuemper get their shots hopefully no later then next year, and I personally still hope earlier.
