We need a new third jersey.

Might as well talk about fashion; this sure the **** isn't hockey out there.

Kings still having major issues with putting together inspired performances, seems to me like. Dunno what the deal is.

The roster is just not very good. No idea it would be this mediocre this year.

Watching every single player on Boston's roster leave their guts on the ice EVERY shift(Then watching the Kings, makes my head want to explode).

That was a super boring first period. Dave Tippet Hockey is just as Boring as Terry Murray hockey.

It really isn't. Too many vets who just don't care. I don't know what Stoll and Penner's deal is, but Williams is on a four year deal and hasn't done much to show that he wants to get it together. Three and a half more years of this Justin Williams is a scary thought.

Perhaps we could benefit from a call-up? Like giving Cliche or Kozun a couple of games on the top 6, King or Nolan on the bottom 6? At least get someone hungry out there.

I have no idea, I guess it really wouldn't matter at this point.

I would trade Stoll or waive Penner immediately. Makes sense if management didn't want to just eat the Penner money though. Player personnel has to change in some tangible way.

Richards on the wing doesn't work and effectively kills a scoring line due to him not centering one, has to be said. Unfortunate.

So frustrating playing the Coyotes....probably the crapiest roster on paper in the NHL, yet because of Tippetts geniusness...they remain competitive as hell.

If anything this year I want to see Clifford get at least Ten Goals and around thirty points.

I think that is possible for him this year. I really want to see Clifford turn into a productive bottom Six guy. I don't want him to turn into a Lewis.

This is what the team looked like under Murray. Boring and going through the motions.

There is noting magical about it, Tippet plays some of the most boring Hockey ever.

I would have taken it if I was closer, sorry about that. It's just too far on a weekday.

They play much more uptempo than the Kings.

I think Penner has made his choice.

Just what I was thinking. Send Stoll away, send Williams away, Penner I dunno, but I havent been this bored at a kings game in a long time...maybe we need Vancouver here every night, now that was a blast!

Not being able to score takes a lot of the fun out of hockey.

For sure, I wonder if the initial shock of the new coach has worn off a bit?

Yeah I gotta agree. It may make sense to put your two top scorers on the same line to generate offense, but it just doesn't turn out that way. Richards is just not a winger type, he's a center. He needs to go back to his position because it just seems like a waste having him at wing right now.

The guy has Millions in the bank, a Hot wife, a child , and a Stanley cup to boot. Penner has shown he has nothing left to play for.

That's what I'm worried about. The third period against Colorado is where this type of play started...

Yeah I agree. That line just doesn't look to have much chemistry. The only solid passes on that line have come from Richards, but he's trying to force it a lot and has actually turned it over a decent amount. I'd rather they go back to the lines Sutter started with.
