Yep, this is simply unacceptable. Sure they're playing well but playing well and not being able to score is still going to end up going in the L column. And it's not like our forwards are forcing Vokoun to make stellar saves, just about everything is going right into his chest or leg pads. I'd say it's the players but I'd be fooling myself by doing so. EVERY team that Maurice has coached here has had this same problem. About the only shot that really challenged Vokoun was one that had him beat... too bad it went right off the post.
And what the hell is with not playing Sutter on the PP when he's been our lone offensive weapon the past 2 games? I get so sick of this **** from Mo.
I agree, DaveG. Brandon has been one of our best players, and he's stuck on the fourth line. It's things like this that put Maurice's job on the line in my eyes.
yeah with all of the line jumbling Mo seems to do, most of which are unnecessary (im one of those who likes the idea of giving a line time to mesh instead of breaking them up if they dont work right away), I am surprised that Sutter hasn't been moved up with his play level in the last few games. You cant tell me that even with Staal out, Sutter hasnt earned a spot higher than 4th line
