I don't want Gauthier making ANY trades. I don't. I don't want any more of his poisonous moves. He is making this team worse with every move...We are already 5 years away from even having a chance at contending. NO MORE.
I don't know... for the most part we are out-shooting and out-playing teams but this team just can't put the puck in the net. Our PK is more likely to score than our PP. I smell a housecleaning from management to coaches to players....
KABERLE.... 2 more years! 2 more years! 2 more years!
I do not know why we break up Kost-Eller-Moen to give Gomez wingers.
I do not know why we sit Eller and Bourque to see GOMEZ on the PP.
I do not know why we do not give Emelin some PP time instead of watching Kaberle do nothing, Diaz shoot a quick weak wrister as soon as he gets it, or Weber having his shot blocked.
I do not know why we must consistently try and prove that trades we got BONED in were good deals. They weren't. The management made a mistake. No matter how many line combinations, how many PP minutes you give them, no matter what you do MANAGEMENT MADE A MISTAKE.
Why are ppl starting to blame this game on Gomez. Plekanec, Kostitsyn, KABERLE, Gill and others were just terrible
Pacioretty - ok
Cole - always gives an effort
DD - ok
Gomez - not bad compared to other games
Plekanec - invisible
Kaberle - garbage
campoli - he sucks.
Markov - pretty good not to bad
Kostisyn - Kovalev's inconsistency rubbed on him.
Emelin - gets called for a solid body check
Weber - made bad decisions but can't blame him to much playing with Kaberle
Darche - gave us a 6 MIN pp
Eller - invisible
What I would like to know is why Randy benched Eller for 20 minutes immediately following Ovechkin's goal. Again. Exactly what Martin was accused of doing but didn't actually do very much of. Except Eller didn't exactly make an egregious mistake except not challenging the point.
Randy's going to have to understand that if he keeps throwing Eller into tough matchups, and Eller keeps floundering, the guy who's failing isn't Eller, it's Randy.
