Jets were so flat, Dustin Penner confused Buff for a pancake. Expected the Jets to do this, though. There were so many positives for the Jets going into this game that I knew they were going to **** it up somehow.
Overall, I wasn't happy with the effort or play for most and I hate the fact that Wheeler got two assists and was key in both those goals yet made some many lackluster plays. It's like he's bipolar. And I also hate the fact that Stuart made a great showing in that fight and then has a great assist for the 3rd Flyers goal. Too much good and bad from those two it seemed like. No consistency.
And a lot of guys were invisible.
On a good note, neither goalie looked bad. Both were solid, just most of the guys in front of them didn't show up.
Kane played really well. Some very odd looking shots on goal by Wheeler. Buff a little rusty... probably due to this being his first game back. Little was meh. Jokinen, Ponikrowski pretty much invisible tonight. Solid game as usual by Burmi, this time he even got a couple of shots on the net.
It's okay, Jet's played pretty good considering it was their second game of a back-to-back..
I really hate Tobias though.. worst decision maker in the o-zone
I think the problem is the fact that too may forwards aren't good decision makers offensively and it holds others down. We have to play smarter and Kane and Wheeler at times make some really dumb decisions. Also, we need a forward that can help QB our PP. Everything literally runs through Enstrom and Buff.

I really hope we can turn things around here when Bogosian returns and we're all healthy.
I don't know, this team just feels a lot like last years team to me.
Feels worse to me. It also scares me that one player can has to be relied on so much. Gotta get that fixed down the road.
Also, it's good to see that getting bigger has made us so tough to play against....
