96 users lurking this forum. Is that around average? Seems like a lot of people to be lurking one forum. Is that the normal amount, or do they just want to witness our misery?

While everyone continues to pile on Miller, how about Stafford? He had 2 turnovers in 5 seconds on Stamkos' second goal. He also tried a wrap-around on the power-play when Max was wide open. Stafford is denied and they score on the transition.

Probably not - I'm sure we'll give up at least one more goal.

So i DVR'd the HD channel, and the feed cut out after the first period

So: my first period analysis. They sucked. To a man they sucked. Miller needs to stop the 2nd two goals, but defensive gaffes (a horrible one by Sekera on the killer 3rd goal) also allowed shots in dangerous areas with little pressure. Roy? Awful. Stafford? Awful. Vanek? Awful (although I see he got on teh board in the 2nd). What happened to the positionally sound Sekera we saw last year? Because right now he's not showing it. If the trade off for more offensive rushes is for less sound defense, I'll take the sound defensive play any day of the week. Weber-Numminen? Awful.

Ellis goes out, and the 4th line gets scored on from the center of the ice. One wonders if the lack of pressure coming back from the middle of the ice was a factor.

Is that stat right? 7-0 odd man rushes for Tampa? Pathetic. This team starts out 6-0-1 (with the last 2-3 games being not very pretty efforts) and the team defense goes right back to last year's level.

A major reshuffling of the lines is necessary. The top line is 100% ineffective with Stafford as an anchor, and not enough secondary scoring is coming from elsewhere.

Vanek-Roy-Afinogenov
Kotalik-CMac-Pominville
Paille-Gaustad-Stafford
Peters-Mair-Kaleta

No no, really, it's my pleasure. On behalf of the other four Lightning fans...

OP, can you see Stamkos yet?

Nobody's going to like this. And I may be the most reactionary fan. But if the Skid reaches 5? Quinn has to pull the trigger. There was no good reason for last years 10 game skid.

We need Rivet & Hecht -- and Gerbe. And Miller needs a sharp slap in the head.
