I think we can all agree that every single one of our top 9 players needs to elevate their game offensively. Not a single one of them are doing what it takes on a consistent basis.
Absolutely.

We got our 2011-2012 D and goaltending back......the only problem was that it came with our 2011-2012 offense tagging along behind.

I think the main thing that stuck out to me was our total lack of determination to go to the net with the puck in the offensive zone. Especially after the first period. Everything was to the outside. No one was willing to pay the price to make a play in the offensive zone.

Hitch has said all along this season that we need to find, "The next gear." He isn't kidding. You look at the Chicago/LA's of this league, and they are playing at that level. We -might- have that ability, but we have yet to see it on a consistent basis. It is pretty depressing, because on paper our team looks really solid. When the game starts though, we just don't have the will to make it happen.
