As a Jackets' fan, you guys are starting to worry me. Outside of simply looking at the four game winning streak, the team seems reenergized and significantly better than all season. So please, wait til you win the lottery before you leap frog over us
Man, i'm starting to regret any argument i made for team progress.
This performance was straight up garbage by pretty much the whole team outside of perhaps Hall, Schultz and Petry and even they had their struggles at times. Ugh!!!
The "vet line" in particular was just straight up garbage. Weirdly enough, i thought that Jones and Smyth brought down Horcoff because it looked like Horcoff was really trying to push some offense for that line but those two slugs are anchors right now, so tough to watch.
I predict that Hall wants out by the end of next season if this garbage continues through next season, his on ice frustration is becoming more and more evident every game and he doesn't even seem to be having fun anymore and is generally emotionless when he scores goals now.
Also, and i know that i will take a lot of crap from the Gagner supporters and frankly i don't care, he has completely disappeared offensively since that hot stretch. I don't understand how a guy with his ability can disappear like this for long stretches.
I'm getting closer and closer to jumping on the Grigorenko/Galchenyuk with every game that passes.
Tambo can't possible watch this team and not want to make major changes.
Potter continues to make the powerplay go. The chemistry he's got with RNH is almost uncanny. Our PP is as good as I can ever remember it being (post 90's) and so much of that success runs through the work going on between 93 & 44.
As for the rest of the sad sack...
Peckham is a denver boot. Has been all season & I can't even fault the GM for that one because Pecks' convinced me he was passable last year.
Thing is...he's been atrocious almost every single game this year. I felt bad for him after his 3rd PIMS of the night. He looked ECHL-ish. It can't be over soon enough for him.
