There goes my hopes for a Touchdown Jesus GDT next game.

You think they'll paint up one of the Cincy-Columbus-Cleveland trains in Believe Train colors (that is, if they ever start that service)?

All I remember was hearing Darren Pang utter a somewhat stunned "Holy Jumpin'..." on their feed.

I've got to believe they'll pull themselves out of this slump at some point....I just hope it's soon.

C'mon, guys....a little fire and desperation would be nice.


Pretty please?

But, what I see from many here feels like hair trigger panic. Full fight or flight response. Fire everybody, make a trade, do something! There are several issues that are hurting on ice performance this year, and I believe they have combined into one big monolith of suck right now:

1. Compressed schedule - yeah, I know, other teams are surviving, but we got too many young guys who are not used to the full rigors of a NHL season.
2. Injuries in game - How many games have the CBJ finished with less than the full 20 on the bench? How many times has somebody been injured in-game and that game turned out as a loss.
3. Sophomore slump - Mason, Voracek, Brassard. I am hoping it is just a sophomore slump.
4. Long term injuries - Klesla, Modin, Commodore. All have been taken out by long term injury or illness. I believe that Commodore has still not fully recovered.
5. Filatov - I think this was a distraction in the locker room, and a bigger one for the fan base. He would be far better served playing in Syracuse, but I am convinced that his mommy convinced him to go home.
6. Leadership - Did not like giving Nash the C when it happened, don't like it now. He is not vocal, just not his style. Take the C and give it to Umberger.
7. Coaching - Inconsistency. I have never liked minute by minute line combo changes that Hitch does. Frankly, I think he is close to panic mode now.
8. Confidence - There is none. Everybody is afraid to make the mistake that costs the game.

I really do think that all it takes right now is a solid injury free win or two and they can start getting themselves back into it. How or when those wins happen will determine the fate of this season.
1. As opposed to Chicago and LA, who are ancient.
2. Most injuries occur in a game. And we are hardly the hardest hit team in this respect.
3. First, Voracek isn't slumping. Second, a "sophomore slump" is another superstition with no basis in reality. Do player's universally or predominantly slump in their second season? No. Pekka Rinne isn't having the problems Mason is. Steve Stamkos isn't having the problems Brassard is. Brassard and Mason are slumping. The question is why and the answer isn't as simple as it's their second season.
4. Mike Commodore is lazy about conditioning. Let's not confuse that with an injury. Klesla has already played in more games than last season. Modin missed 32 games last season.
5. Plenty of blame to go around for this one. Including your #7.
6. Won't happen, but I don't disagree.
7. Getting warmer...
8. See your #6 and #7.

This team has again dug itself a hole. It can end one of two ways--like last year or like 2 years ago.

The "we're a young team" excuse is very old and not even true. So let's stop using that.

The Kings and Hawks are both younger, yes that's true, and both have significantly better records than we do.

It's getting to where I kind of don't even want them to win anymore because it would probably be for the higher good if they keep losing.

Actually, I think I like the Raffi2 phenomenon better than I like the man himself. A few months into the season, and I still find the Raffi1/Raffi2 thing hilarious.

I don't think I've ever seen a team with the inability to clear the puck as bad as this team.
