HALAK obviously the best player on the ice, Cam/Hammer were ok too, Pleks was alright tonight. Gomez can't hit the net, didn't setup the PP right, taking slapshots when we should be passing it around, just frustration on his end and it showed.
This has nothing to do with why we're not scoring but how the hell does Chipchura get scratched 3 straight games while ****ing useless Latendresse and Lapierre don't? Chipchura was improving every game while these other two guys have been ****ing plugging it up all year.
Agreed these two guys are useless and Chips was getting better and better.
That's the point. Wins and losses come and go, teams stay, there will be another day. If you get frustrated by 1-0 losses when your MVP is out of the lineup, you might just wanna find new hobbies, might be better for your blood pressure.
You have all the right in the world to be frustrated and I have all the right in the world to find it childish. That's freedom of speech my friend.
You know what...you're right. But it's kind of frustration and sadness that just engulf, the Habs find a way to put me in a sour mood after a loss.
I keep on imagining if our team had Markov, if Andrei Kostitsyn was burying them, if some guys were not being incredibly useless...we'd be challenging for the division right now, I have no doubt. And that, is part of my frustration, seeing us piss away this start to the season because of ******** injuries and ******** play from a team that has more to give.
You have every right to find it childish, believe me, I would much prefer being all smiles and jokes after a nice win.
This is why the Thrashers and Lighting games were so important. Calgary is a beast of a team and I didn't give us much of a chance at winning.
It's blatantly obvious that we need secondary scoring and I hope Bob gets on it right away. With Markov's loss, it was clear that the offense would dip but right now it's simply anemic. We've scored 2 goals in the last 3 games and we've provided our goalies a 2 goal lead but ONCE in 18 games. This is desperation stage. Bring up Sergei and complete that second trio because Lappiere is just not happening. You're just nullifying that 2nd line by putting a plugger in it. All creativity goes to ****. Put Metro there and you'd get better results. Anyweyz, something needs to be done ASAP. We're falling behind way too fast.
