I love when the Jackets are supposed to be good at cycling and they aren't...

All with 1 goal this year, except Foglino with 2 after tonight.

Richards is a moron.
As if he has 30 goal scorers sitting on the bench?

You have more skilled players than Derek Dorsett.

It was poor line management. Whether you want to negative nelly or positive pete, having Dorsett out there at that point in time was a bad move.

Bobrovsky was spectacular, other than that the game sucked. Tyutin and Nikitin essentially were the difference.

I guess it depends, who was out the shift before, messages to send, etc etc.

Not saying they were the best choices by a long shot, but there are reasons sometimes why a group is out there beyond who scored what.

We are so much better with Johnson on the ice. It was night and day during this game.

Neutral hockey fan here, Boll is not needed on your team, McKenzie too, Dorsett is 4th line material, Aucoin is no longer NHL quality.. You need to upgrade your coaching staff.. That head coach doesnt look like he knows hockey. All the best

This year is just a transition year anyways. There was little chance of us making the playoffs. We just need some warm bodies to take up space while the new regime looks at the kids we have in the system and starts making room for them next season.

But the game was definitely lackluster. And with many more showings like that you better believe no one is safe. If the right deal comes across the desk that makes sense, it's gonna happen.

I'd like to thank Time Warner for having the DVR screw up so I couldn't watch this morning. While you may be losing a customer, you have earned my thanks, which hopefully is good enough.

The highlight of the thread/game has to be the Boomer appearance.

I must admit that I did not stay up and watch the game. By what I am reading and hearing, I am glad I didn't.

Anyway, our boys are back in their familiar comfy, cozy, 30th place in the NHL.

This team, for whatever reason, cannot seem to motivate itself to play hard every night. I think in the end, that does cost Richards his job. Like him or not, everyone knows how this team must play to win, and it isn't happening every game. They showed the world in the Edmonton game that with their scoring problems, even a team that sleepwalks through a game can still beat them when they put forth a strong effort. Thus, you would think that they would realize that that type of effort must be put forth every game for them to even have a chance to win. But alas, once again it seems that another team gets away with putting forth little effort to beat the boys in Union blue. But this time there was no stellar work effort that was not rewarded. That, fair or not, will fall on the coaches shoulders.

The Kings played last night exactly how the Jackets need to play to be successful. Every time a Jacket defenseman went in his own zone to get the puck, there were two King players there disrupting creating turnovers.

On our PP, the Kings were on the puck forcing the puck carrier into a mistake, not sitting back waiting. The Jackets do not have an answer to that type of play. Some games the Jackets pass more cleanly than others and are able to breakout before the forecheck establishes, and on the PP are able to beat the pressure. Not last night. Bob played well enough to give the boys a chance to win. In the end we know what we are, a team that can't match the effort needed on a nightly basis. A team without enough skilled players that if the work isn't there, games like this are the norm.

Has it ever occurred to you guys that a much of what you consider loafing around is actually LOFT?

I'm not picking on you directly doc, I just think a lot of what people gripe about (flatness, awful power plays, inability to sustain offensive pressure) in these GDTs are more a result of the team just not having the skill to do these things well.

It was a defensive battle by two team that looked out of sync half the game.

I keep thinking of how much better we'd be under "Two-goal Claude".

He's getting 2.54 gpg
We just cracked 2, going to 2.14 after the Jose explosion.

Yeah, but imo he tried to do a little too much last night.

Of course we have. Its just that Viqsi would burn us if we constantly mentioned it. Besides it would get boring if we dwelt strictly on that topic.

From the early days I've always thought that the Jackets biggest problem was that they had to exert maximum effort every night in order to win (due to a LOFT) and I don't think a team is capable of overachieving for 82 games. or even 50 of the 82.

All of that is a skill. A talent.
