The evidence is right in front of us. Washington worked about 1/4 as hard as we did yet came out with the win. We just don't have the talent to compete night in and night out. Teams can take nights off against us, and their goaltender will be able to stone us because of a lack of offensive talent, and our goaltending and defense will eventually screw something up and let us lose.

Clemmer was awful in the SO but that was expected. Barkov's move was something else. My goodness that kid has skills.

It was nice to see a solid effort. They didn't stop trying and it actually showed. Unfortunately for us, our best effort is rarely good enough to get the victory.

This current roster will never be above .500. Tonight was the first real night where I felt Dineen can't be blamed. The team is playing relatively well on a whole, not nearly as bad as we were earlier in the year, but when our defense fumbles pucks constantly, goaltending doesn't make any key saves (although Clem was a LOT more solid than Marky in net....sad, I know), well, we won't win many, if any, games at all.

The talent is seriously lacking here guys. I really can't see how anyone thinks this current roster is more talented than 2011-12 just because we have Hubs and Barkov. I would take Sammy over Boyes, Garrison over Gilbert and Weiss over Gomez any day.

Not to mention a much more stable and effective Theodore in net.
