"Subban wouldn't make it out here in the west where teams play actual defence and don't just rover around. Its no wonder he broke out in the year where there was no inter conference games." -Pure (Avs fan)
There is no sense of urgency in any of them. I love the rookies and they are doing what they should be doing (learning) but if this conference was competitive at all this team wouldn't qualify, not with this gutless play.
This team cannotr be considered a serious contender at this point. Not enough firepower up front (not to mention a lack of overall physicality), and the defense is being exposed to injury. The losses of Markov and Gorges have forced Spacek, Hammer, Gill, et. al to play too many minutes.
Early playoff exit unless 2 big moves are made:
Top 4 defensive-defenseman who can set a physical tone
Top 6 forward with size willing to play in the tough areas with a scoring touch
The farm is stocked. Time to move some youth to address deficiencies. Otherwise we finish 6th-9th, and bow out in Round 1.
Well you dont say. Did you ever think this team was considered a 'serious contender' at any point this season? I dont see how you could.
i had bad feeling after the game yesterday that we will go on big slump tonight we didnt look that bad but we also played the worst team in our conference PG has to make a move this team needs a spark or they will be fighting for playoff spot untill last game of season
Same here. Smells like the slump after the Detroit game.
Seriously, I wouldn't be upset with no moves. This is obviously not the full potential of our team. I don't think we'll win the cup while missing key components like Markov and Gorges and having our 2nd line center play like an AHLer.
I think we have the players to get it done, they are just not being given the chance. On top of that, the wrong players are getting all kinds of ice. No more Gomez and AK. They suck. Pouliot deserves some ice time. It's getting ridiculous.
