Just trying to point out the issues you see that we have seen for a number of years but I guess the rose coloured film hasn't come off your glasses yet.

Or perhaps you are more critical of players than most. It seems to me that once we made the deal for Hal Gill we had a TON of Habs fans telling us that, provided we don't use him in the wrong role, he will be an excellent stay-at-home defenseman who can kill penalties. That is exactly what he has been for the most part. I think most of us are happy with him.

I think we are really missing Gaustad. Things have kinda gone crazy with him gone. I didn't expect a big difference without him but he's been very solid.

Well you missed some damn good exciting hockey. You missed out. Sorry you feel you have to abandon the team. You're setting a bad example for them.

You will certainly get that and as we all said as long as you use him in the right roll but he will cost you at times and I think you saw that last night. He is good on the PK though as we all said previously. To many it was surprising when our PK improved after he was dealt.

Gill has been good more often than not since coming to Nashville. AK has seen a bump in his goals per game since leaving. SK is succeeding here.

Maybe it's Montreal, and not the players.

Every player is entitled to a bad night. The entire team made mistakes, and last night nearly all of those mistakes found their way on to the score board. It happens. It's hockey, and it's played over a loooong season. Everyone is going to look bad. That doesn't mean that Gill is playing poorly in general, and I don't think anyone in the organization has buyer's remorse.

You don't have to tell me lol look at the team I cheer for this season lol. I am full on part of tank nation lol. I also got to hear about the great play of the preds last night from friends that were at the game so I was well aware of what was happening and the messages i recieved were not good ones lol.

I believe I am the biggest proponent of crapping on players going. Especially guys playing in Habs jerseys. so I do not believe I wear rose coloured glasses at all.

This team misses Josi far more than they miss any of our other injured players (including klein when he was injured). Josi's skill set is irreplaceable on that 2nd pairing.

Get healthy guys back and add rads we should do ok. Find our inner predator/ killer instinct and suddenly we are a great team.

If josi is going to be out a while, I would rather have Blum up playing with Gill. Ellis didn't do a whole lot for me. Hillen is solid as a 7th dman use every now and then guy, but having either of those guys on the 2nd pair and we are toast. with blum, you know what he can do if his head is on right.

Might as well stay home and let your tickets go to real fans.
Despite not being directed at me I find the above to be a silly comment; insulting and without merit.

Perhaps she is setting an excellent example, indicating what a paying fan deems to be an unacceptable on-ice product. Shockingly, each fan's threshold may not be identical to yours.

To the point: A six year old, independent of performance, may expect mommy to cheer in a constant state of euphoria. A pro athlete should not.

As loud as the crowd was at the refs, in my opinion, the loudest the arena got was for the fan of the game. Was that girl not the most adorable thing you have ever seen?

She got a standing ovation from me... I'm trying to find a video. Hopefully the Preds will post it because I wanted to show friends that weren't at the game.

the boos hit 103 decibels, which is pretty loud. but, as a father, I think I related to the dad as the he was about to lose himself to the tears of being a proud parent.

Witnessed a strange experience as the dear wifey and I were walking down to the arena the other night. A guy was walking up the sidewalk, asking if anyone needed tickets. A couple walking beside us started talking to him, and the guy said he could probably get them tickets center ice for x amount, etc. Well, we get down to the corner of Fifth and Broadway where the scalpers are, and the guy walks up to the scalper and wants to know what he has, and that he's "representing" the couple. I don't know how much he charged his "clients" to interact with a scalper, but just found it strange that someone would try to do that. Hmmmm...so I pay you a fee to negotiate ticket prices with a scalper...uhh..ummm..yeah...

I thought about that too. Quite the scam they have if they do work together. I didn't wait to see how it all turned out.

I've seen scalpers try to do this. I'm sure they all work together in some form or another and highly recommend against letting any of them "represent" me in ticket purchases.

So can anyone seriously explain all of the Ryan Jones hate here? I can think of exactly ZERO reasons that a Preds fan would have to hate on Jones.

other than he comes off as a ******?

just some of his twitter comments in the past, which he is totally fine to make, I just didn't like them.

He really only seems to show up and be a pain in the ass when we play him.

his celebration last night rubbed me the wrong way.

I hate that some around here think he would be productive here when he wasn't when we had less talent.
