I'm not understanding this 'luck' excuse. This team cannot be unlucky for most games this season. It's just a bad team.

We've given up 53 GA so far this season. That's not unlucky, that's just crappy D and horrible goaltending. We can't win puck battles consistently which severely limits what type of offense we can run. Our players are more interested in scoring 'fancy' goals through toe drags and no look passes than sustaining offense through cycling. Those aren't factors due to poor 'luck', they are factors due to having a poor team. We're not all that gritty. We try to play physical, but we don't have the talent to do it. Our special teams are awful. Our system is TBD thus far in the season.

Essentially, the luck excuse is a cop out. Unless we've been 'unlucky' for the majority of the season, which imo, is very unlikely, we're just a really badly assembled team. Most excuses we're seeing right now, Injuries, road games, youth whatever the hell, they are just excuses. At some point we just have to accept the idea that this team is going nowhere (again) this season. Luck has very little to do with it.
