Simple as that. I hope we see our coach show a bit more "guts" in the next few days. He's coaching like he doesn't want to offend. It's good when we win, but if we start losing, that's what happens. Budaj can't play more than 5% of games. White needs to be benched for a long time.
* Budaj isn't a good enough back up goalie for Carey Price. And don't BS us with his few good saves. I'm not blaming him for the last goal as it was clearly a GK Interference. I can barely skate but I would score at least 5 out of 10 penalties on him.
* MT has to talk to Ryan White about him dropping the gloves without his opponents. I LOVE players like White that stand up for their teammates but getting stupid penalties every second game is ridiculous.
* Cole has to get a few wake-up-good-morning slaps.
I've been patient all year given the fact that the lockout effected the form of players across the league, but we need the following players to step up (in no order)
And to a lesser extent
I am sick and tired of Budaj providing nothing out there, and I'm sick of cole and gio floating. Pacioretty needs to start getting aggressive and putting shots on net. White's problems are obvious. As for DD, Eller, and Moen: The first two are getting better but we need them to take a step and be go-to guys, (especially Eller) we can't rely on rookie scoring all year. As for Moen, he's simply been Meh this year (I know he didn't play tonight but still)
I can't believe we let that one get away from us. We better beat the leafs Saturday or else it could get ugly in the standings and our momentum.
