Our offense is just horrendous. But I'm not surprised considering were icing the same team as last year's King's series.

Besides the Sedins there's really nothing else there. When will AV learn to start incorparating skilled players instead of journeymen plugs (ebbett, etc).

Three things:

1.) Call up Schroeder...I don't care if that means we might lose Cam "3rd overall" Barker on the waiver wire
2.) Fire Arniel for ruining our prospects' development and confidence this year.
3.) Pray to god Kesler gets back to 100% pdq

scrounging for positives

Garrison looks good
Hamhuis contributing offensively
Hansen looking good
Weise has made a lot of improvements in his play

I think Vigneault lost the room some time last season, and even if he hasn't its time for a change, they guy never has them ready to start the season

Hrudey can't form sentences is coherent fashion during the intermissions, how do they expect him to on the fly during a game? Bizarre.

Ebbett? Why is this plug even in our team. Can't win a single face-off... heck that second line is being used as a fourth line now.




Why did we send Schroeder back again?
Because he's an average player in the AHL.

The ducks defense looks really good for some reason.

Liked the traffic up front in the first period and the shots through traffic below the hashmarks. Also liked that the forwards were actually in a position to bang-in rebounds.

The rest:

Think i'm going to have to blame the coaching for this one.

Team is just not ready and that happens pretty much every October too.

Remember when the younger Rask stole the crease from the older Tim Thomas? Thomas stole it back and then Boston went on to win the cup with Thomas as the MVP.

Will history repeat itself?

There is a lot of precedence to be worried about a slow start and the effects it may have.
I just want the team healthy and firing on all cylinders, but it seems the players are just not capable of doing so...

I have faith in the team but not the coach... it really is ridiculous cause no one here seems to be able to actually call it like it is aside from a few... as mentioned above AV ran his course last sping, but GMMG is lost in some wierd inifinite loop of loyalty.

Bottom line is the team is too small and not tough enough, and not deep enough. Ducks exposing this team mightely tonight. All you have to do is shove them around.

But this fanbase also said the kings suck heading into playoffs.

It's funny how fast people flip on Schneider. Do I need to remind you why he took over in the playoffs last year? After Luongo's umpteenth collapse. Luongo has been blown out tons of times. I'm not sure if Cory will be awesome by try to be a little objective, it's one game.
