3rd straight game without a goal? Can they really do it?

And people wonder why I would've puked if we took Ryan Murray last year.

Definitely. He's been solid in his own zone. He's been backchecking fairly well and working hard along the boards. Offensively he's shown some good flashes, he does get knocked off the puck fairly easily though. Pretty aggressive in the neutral zone, he attacks the puck carrier consistently. You can tell he wants to play.

Thanks. Good to hear. That's one thing that I haven't gotten about him is that he's stayed the same weight since he's been drafted. Vegan or not he should put some weight on for crying out loud.

Hamilton's colour guy really doesn't like the wave.

Didn't know that was a legit pet peeve.

I know we've made some 'randy lefebvre' jokes in the past, but tonight I'm really seeing the same disorganized, hopeless hockey I saw from Cunney's habs. There's no structure whatsoever.

I feel for Leblanc, Tinordi and Beaulieu and St-Denis.Maybe throw Gallagher in there too. The rest just don't seem to have a single clue about what to do. The rest have a whole lot to learn, but I guess that's to be expected with such a young team.



And Commodore is... ugh

I hope these performances dont reflect the quality of the young players cause this is getting to be pretty pathetic.

I really don't think so. This lockout can't end soon enough for the Dogs. It's a mix of lockout, injuries, youth and Lefebvre.

I've never seen a line have less chemistry than Holland-Avtsin-Quailer. So so very disorganized. Thought Avtsin skated real well in all zones. Man I hope he can put it together.

We need someone to do a Mark Messier type thing.

Tonight we'll...Score.

To be fair, even with the lockout how many of the Marlies players wouldn't be there ? Gardiner, who didn't play and maybe Paul Ranger. Kadri would be there and back periodically. The rest of their team are ahlers and not very good prospects. They'd still destroy this young team. Especially when the player who can't take a night off, did. At least I think he did. Didn't catch the game.

I' ve watched a few games, the defence corps seems pretty solid as they seem to keep getting better, but the offence is absolutely useless. Gallagher, Dumont and Leblanc are the only forwards ready to be called up.

Thank god, if there is a god, that we drafted Galchenyuk.

Seriously, every time I watch the Bulldogs the parallels to RC's Habs are just uncanny. I know they lack experience and high end talent, but that doesn't excuse lost PP schemes, clueless line rolling, playing talented guys like Holland and Avtsin with plugs, and so on.

The only difference is Cunneyworth's Bulldogs never looked this bad when I watched them.

The one positive I will say compared to the past Avtsin looks much better this year, he finally seems like he can keep up with the game. I don't know if Lefebvre has anything to do with it, I'm guessing not because other forwards have regressed since the beginning of the season, but it's possible.

I did hear that Lefebvre was working with Avtsin especially at practice.

Seems like Lefebvre is a great career assistant coach and a garbage head coach.

Well, this is the first semi crisis facing Bergevin. How he handles it will be interesting - and possibly defining.

If he's as smart as I believe he is, he'll make a good decision.

Could be the case, a great practice coach and terrible game manager.

I'm fairly certain I would never, ever have hired anyone without some previous experience in the position of head coach, especially for a development team. Maybe someone young, (frankly, I'm thinking of a guy like Dominique Ducharme 39-22-2-5 last year with a rebuilding and very young Halifax Mooseheads team, and a ridiculous 31-3-1-1 this year in the Q) but at least have a bit of a track record of not getting in the way as head coach. That said, I hoped that a miracle would occur and Sylvain Lefevbre was born to coach hockey or that Bergevin knew something that I did not. I have lost faith in both possibilities.
