Did they change the rules? It used to be only the bottom 5 teams could get the first pick.

The officiating was certainly bad etc.......BUT over the course of the season it typically evens out for the most part in my opinion........With a short season though i hope there are enough games to center the scale.

17th have a 0,5% chance I think. That's once every 200 years, probably won't ever happen.

Either the personnel or the system needs to change to survive.
Please bring back Matt Carle!

We need Briere back.



Also, gonna go ahead and say it: Schenn needs to prove he can finish or Lavy needs to pull him off the top line NOW.

That's good to hear. I'm not too worried then. I think as long as Bryz plays well, we'll be fine. We'll get our groove back eventually and then we should roll from there.

Remember when Roy scored the GWG in 4v4 OT as the fifth skater years ago?

Maybe Briere can play Voracek's spot on the point

I'm fairly sure the rest of the users on the main board didn't watch the game

'The goaltender interference call on the disallowed was an obvious call. Hartnell ran Miller over. That call gets called every time and Hartnell should have gotten a penalty'

What.

because the refs disallowed a goal in the first that they know they messed up on, they usually let it go the next time. the fact that they waived off a reeeeeaally close goal that couldhave made it 4 to 3 later, when they technically " owed us one" speaks volumes of they subtle bias that certain refs have toward certain tens. the same ref took both goals away.

Heres the thing. ALOT of people here wanted these HUGE 6'5 defenders who hit hard. Well for the most part thats all our defense is now. We have 5'11 Timonen and everyone else is 6'2 (or so) and taller (and slower). Their hitting hard!....but they dont defend to well.

As much as I hate to say it, I see a very very very slow start resulting in a Lavy firing. Sucks and he doesn't deserve it but we don't have the personnel to play his system.
And is it just me or does the loss of Carle and Jagr look as though its leaving a glaring hole?
This teams offensive and defensive game with or without Briere just are not good enough. Coburn has looked awful when I expected a big step up from him. Giroux though he has 2 goals seems lost to me.
Read,Couts, and B. Schenn have looked very ordinary and we need them to play much better.
Bryz finally is playing well and the team is not. Go out and sign a veteran like Arnott or Sykora. We need some veteran help up front.

Go check out the thread on the main boards.

That's basically half the responses

Hartnell was the one who ran into miller in the 3rd, he was driven to the net by Regher, miller flopped like a true gold medal diver as always, and Hartnell got a penalty. I think that's what they're referring to.

Not sure I heard too much of that recently, but years ago sure.
Either way, people with that opinion should have learned their lesson from Hatcher/Rathje.
