Hate that drop pass. I wanted them to get rid of it yesterday. Drop pass, goal-tending, and the players are who's to blame tonight. We're going down 0-2 this weekend. The Canucks can't be their magical self in one night after being horrible on the first game of the year.
- 2nd line is the 4th line. Thought Raymond actually looked OK in limited minutes. Kassian was a total non-factor and Ebbett ditto. Ridiculous that Schroeder isn't dressed after the chemistry shown with Raymond in the scrimmages.
The one thing about Kassian is that he has literally zero chemistry with Ebbett. They just don't mesh together one bit, didn't in the AHL either (except on the PP).
I think having Schroeder on that line would improve the play of both Raymond and Kassian.
This is what I'm pissed about. THIS IS THE SAME TEAM THAT LOST TO THE KINGS IN THE FIRST ROUND LAST YEAR.
There's just no offense when the Sedins are not there... Gillis had done nothing to improve this team. We may have gained Garrison, but IMO the lost of Salo negates this.
If it didn't work last year (our offense line) what makes us think it will work this year? Were not here for a president throphy were here for the cup.
If this is the effort they give us after the lockout than I don't know how this team is ever going to take accountability and show some decent effort..
The Mike Gillis apology speech was just pathetic.
