The forwards look alright when they're in the offensive zone. But we have the worst defense in the league AINEC, yes that includes Edmonton. They can't clear their own zone if their lives depended on it. The reason our forwards struggle so much to score goals is because the defenseman can never give the puck to them and they have to skate it out themselves. Just trade O'Reilly for a top 4 defenseman please.

What????
I get the Stazz hate to a certain extent but I think he played great today.
One of our best players...

Great effort by Duchene there. A one time snipe by Hedgie wouldve been beyond ridiculously great.

But eh. All aboard the Tank!

We are winning against the teams that are worse and losing against those that are better.

Problem is that EDM and CGY are in our division

So no Seth -.-

Stastny had a good game. Hunwick and that ridiculous delay of game from O'byrne cost us the game.


Our defense is so bad it makes me want to cry

This lose brought to you by Hunwick, O'Brien, O'Byrne and Sacco. Sherman address your teams defense for once please

****. Our defense is so ****ing awful.

O'Byrne, O'Brien, and Zanon are just some of the worst NHL defenders I have EVER seen.

Never seen an NHL team with so many slow moving defensemen with ZERO puck skills and some of the most stupid decision making I've ever seen. Pathetic.

Our forwards were alright, but really, can you blame them for the defensemen not being able to make simple breakouts happen?


Ugh... ****ing scratch O'Byrne that guy has been the worst Dman on our squad for the last week+ and that is saying something with how bad O'Brien and Zanon have been.

Do you think the average Stars fan know Hunwick and O'Byrne?

I was saying it last year, and I'll keep on saying it.

This team is really not big or strong enough with the forwards to play the traditional "Dump and Chase" technique.

I know it's a Hockey standard, to dump it in and go get it, but I think that you need a team with some big forwards, for me SJ springs to mind, that can be effective along the boards in getting the puck back.

When we dump it in, it just really seems that we are just conceding possession of the puck, because I feel that we only get the puck back about 10% of the time.

On the bright side, at least we have Zanon and O'Brien for a few more years.

There is just no options on defence. Once Johnson is done his shift, may as well mail in the thought of any sort of breakout next shift. This needs to be fixed asap. It is so painful watching Zanon-O'Byrne, O'Brien-Hejda, Hunwick. It is actually laughable thinking about where these guys would be on a good team.

I just don't get the Stastny hate. What about his play has EVER screamed "Highlight Reel"?

He will be a player that quietly goes about his business, doing the little things and being a nice passer with an average shot.

He had 2pts tonight and has had 5 points in the last 3 games (I think it's been 3 games).

I'm loving PAP! Thank god we brought him in or this season would be a write off!

Dutchy looking awesome as usual, Varly with several game savers, nice to see the Duke with a bit of fire again!

10 years ago Duke would have buried that. Oh well, nice play from Dutch.

Defence isnt good enough to make it to the playoffs. We need 2 more strong D and one of Barrie or Elliott to step up and play well for us to go a decent way.

XXXX-EJ
Wilson-XXXX
Hejda-Barrie/Elliott

Good effort from the forwards tonight.

I would be surprised if we made the playoffs, can't lose games like this.
This isn't a playoff team. The only wins the Avs have relied heavily on goaltending against weak opponents. Just wait till the Avs play the heavyweights of the western conference. It will get ugly. Remember San Jose?

To be honest I had no problems with our top two lines tonight I think Sgar needs to be bumped up his creativity is apparent but sacco wants him to be Wyatt Smith

This one hurt, but hey look at our injuries, i feel like our team is stepping up offensively (PAP, Staz), sadly we still have an Beer League team defensive core... once we get our forwards back i hope we keep the effort level up like this.
