not only is it hard to watch, its hard to coach and its hard to produce anything when your team IS DEVOID OF TALENT.

and when youve got slugs like we have playing in our top 9 and on our first pp unit, are you really surprised about the lack of intensity and ungency and lethargy ?

these guys cant skate, they cant shoot, they cannot pass and they cant score. that is a recipe for bad hockey and bad hockey wears you down.

we have a total of 3 forwards who have scored a goal so far this season. and 2 of those guys have 7 of the 8 total goals. think about that.

we are last in gpg @ 1.57 and worst in gaa @ 4.14. thats unmanageable and unsustainable. period. and imo, it goes beyond effort and intensity.

its a TALENT issue.

given all this, are you surprised that out compete level is lacking ?

you have been watching the same games yes?
You've done a great job of explaining why the team has been offensively anemic.

It does not, however, explain the lack of intensity, hard work and effort.
