Bold proclamations that players are done, that they should be traded, that their captaincy should be stripped, that they no longer belong in the top 6 off a small sample size is as fairweather as it gets. People lack serious perspective on these boards and if you don't like that I'm calling them out then tough luck, friend.

I'm thankful the people in charge of our fine organization aren't as reactionary as some members of this board. I understand the purpose is to discuss and dissect players, but it's one thing to do that and entirely another to scapegoat and label players like we constantly do (Price doesn't steal games, Bourque is lazy, Gionta is done, Subban is dumb/greedy, Markov is finished, Desharnais is too small, Eller is a career 3rd-liner, Kaberle is an AHLer, etc).

Subban took a penalty that directly cost us the game, I really don't see the relation between criticizing him for a stupid play and saying something like he doesn't belong on this team anymore as a result.
