Finley playing is a joke. Hickey should be in. As pointed out the Winnipeg goal was Aucoin's fault not Hickey's. That was an awful decision to pass in that situation.

This team can not afford to dress two players who will only play 5 or 6 minutes. Playing with 5 defensemen for 3 periods is asking to lose.
I am NOT agreeing with the decision. Just explaining to people why Cappy did what he did for this game. People are saying that they do not understand why Cappy scratched Ullstrom and Hickey. I am telling them why. IMO....this is just immature coaching. This decision is a fricken house league move..nothing else. We have Martin...let Martin fight someone and move on. We only bring out Boulton and Finley for one of those "payback" type games ala Penguins. I don't mind throwing a bunch of not so stellar players to teach another team a lesson...but not this...we need the win BADLY.

Bailey-Cizikas-Okposo
Martin-Aucoin-McDonald

These lines would be solid.
I understand your frustration with the 4th line, the only thing I can say in defense is that the 4th line has to be at least competitive. Ullstrom give them that.

Should have read through all of the pages of the thread, before making the Ullstrom comment. I agree with the Ullstrom fans, he belongs in the lineup.

I don't understand Capuano's decision making. I think he really does not trust Ullstrom out there. The last game he gave him less than 7 minutes of ice time and I do not think he has given him anything close to a consistent 12-14 mins a night? I know some here like Aucoin, but after his quick start he has been invisible. There is a reason the guy has spent so much time in the AHL, it is because he is physically over matched in the NHL. McDonald is a nice player, but I would have played Ullstrom over him also. I understand Boulton going into the garden but not Finley for Hickey, and Capuano just started giving Hickey some bigger minutes. He simply cannot keep over playing his top two lines and top two defensive pairing and expect to win or create any type of team consistency. I have not been on the fire Capuano movement, but after today's decision he better have a plan in mind or maybe he does have to go...

The fact that Ullstrome is scratched is more evidence towards my original statement on this thread. You make changes for improvement not for the sake of change. Cappy is hopefully getting ready to be fired.

Can't wait until Capuano is fired and we can start getting a new coach ready to get fired in 2 years.

Finley paired with Streit. The no-defense defense.

Boulton should be playing over no one... Everytime I see this guy on the ice, I ask myself: "why is this guy on the ice?" He literally brings nothing to this team. I don't expect anything different tonight.

As pissed as I am about Ullstrom being a healthy, playing Finley over Hickey is completely asinine. Cappy out now!

Twine I don't know how you are still alive. You've been flipping out on here for at least 5 or 6 years, you'd figure your heart would have popped by now. This team is going to be the end of you.

At least Streit brings offense. Finley just sucks in every aspect.

I'm sure Finley and Boulton's combined 10 minutes that they will play tonight is really going to help us.

I swear, multiple members of this forum would be better coaches than Jack Capuano.

No doubt.

When I was younger my Dad told me stories about the Coliseum and he said thats what fans called it in the 80's

Hardly the case now but hopefully one day we will be competitive again

Heard the avs are shopping Bobby Ryan to the east. Wonder if that is why hickey and ullstrom are healthy scratches. Never know. I would defenatly have Ullstrom in over Boulton. I agree with the sit okposo over Boulton to see if that lights a fire under his ass..

Did you mean Ducks or ROR? Either one should interest the Isles.

It's not why they're scratched. They're scratched because our coach sucks.

I am not sure then you wouldnt think that Ullstrom would sit over Boulton or Okposo the way he has been playing. Maybe he does suck but i am sure Snow would have something to say about who plays as well. I do believe there is a move coming and this might be it. Honestly thing that sitting okposo would send a message, sitting one of your assistants
