I miss Niskanen. I'd play him over Lovejoy, though.

EDIT: Not that Lovejoy is necessarily bad.

Yeah Paul Martin is single handedly responsible for blowing a three goal lead.

No, but he was clearly the worst link in the part of the game that was responsible for it. Something needs to change if he plays like that in game two.

What he'd do wrong exactly? I don't think we played that bad. Just fell asleep with a big lead again. Briere first goal was a turnover by the forwards and was offside. Briere's 2nd goal was just a shot thrown to the net with Crosby screening Fleury. Schenn had a redirect with Letang defending him. The team seemed convinced that Philly could not come back from 0-3 down to beat them and consequently they didn't have the type of response shifts/goals that you need when the other team starts chipping away at your lead.

I can't believe we're paying 5 million dollars a year for this pantywaist.

soft play throughout the entirety, horrible clearing attempts, no offensive game to speak of.

I think i'd rather see Strait. At least he makes an effort to use the body and push people around out there.

Martin got beaten to virtually every puck that got put behind him, and when he did get there first, he promptly lost the battle. He plays without urgency or investment.

Some people have misinterpreted his cavalier play for calmness, but the truth is that he doesn't adjust the pace of his game to suit the situation.

Having a better coach that brings some discipline might help Martin but until then we have the "Disco Dan Country club" to deal with.
