I watched most of the game and was appalled by the play of Dubnyk and Petry. With poor goaltending and defense, do you expect to make the playoffs?
It is a shame we keep getting 1 pt out of these games. Kevin Lowe will get to keep his job and sell it to the fans that this team is "turning the corner". If we lost 10 straight games that would be best because there would be immense pressure to fire Lowe.
I kind of agree with you. The team is gutting out points but the glaring holes just become more glaringly

When Horcoff was hurt they should have found an NHL player to replace him. We roll with VV to see if he is an NHLer, decide he's not after a dozen games and roll Smyth out as center. We again create our own problems and it puts us in a situation where in a key game we are dressing two centers. In the corporate world that would be seen as mismanagement and people would be fired.
