JD, a change needs to be made now. Efforts like the last two nights are an insult to the entire fan base.

I thought last nights effort was good. We look beat up and tired tonight. Every team probably feels that way, but we sure look it.

Effort is about the farthest thing from a problem right now for this team.

What are you talking about. They are battling their hearts out but they just aren't good. The one thing they ARE doing right is effort.

Nothing wrong with the effort, it's the results that need to change.

Probably the most pathetic effort in years. Mason should never lose a game playing like he did tonight.

Someday the jackets won't suck. I'll probably be long dead and buried at that point, but someday...

Another great effort with nothing to show for it. This team plays hard but doesn't seem to get a break. It would help if we had more talent on offense. Great game by Mason.

The effort didn't insult this fan. When you take our roster on the second night of a back to back and put us up against the Hawks, really this could have been a lot worse. And we played hard last night.

How anyone could say the effort wasn't there isn't very observant. To hold the Hawks to 1 g is damn good. Unfortunately we can't put the pick in the net. Big difference between that and lack of effort.

If you can't complete or handle a pass from a foot away that's a bad effort. No excuse for being tired, every other team in the league is dealing with the same type of schedule.

No doubt....Can't score 1 freaking goal...Unreal.

With the exception of anybody under 25 who is worth a damn....Trade everyone.

Hawks were just as bad.

And the Jackets didn't hold them to 1 goal, Mason did. The amount of turnovers and horrible play in the back gave Chicago numerous chances to score 5+ times.

Good effort, an L pushes that top pick a game closer, heck even Mason looked good..what's not to like? Things are headed in the right direction.

Seems you have a different idea of effort and how it effects play than most everyone else.

I actually didn't think that they played that badly for the second of a back-to back, and the last game of a grueling road trip.

Better than I expected anyway.

You are what your record says you are.
You and everyone else can tell me how BOB is a better goalie this year, I don't buy it.
For anyone to point to Mason (not about you on this slightlystewpid) as a reason why we are losing shows the ignorance of some people. This team is a horrible NHL offensive team, heck probably a few AHL teams could score more than these guys. When your best offensive playmaker is Cam Atkinson you know it's bad. No offense to CAM but he would strugglge to even play on the top 6 in Chicago.

Also the last thing JD should be doing is tinkering with the team. Let Jarmo evaluate the team for next couple weeks and figure out who doesn't fit. If that means gutting the roster that's fine, if it means just moving a couple players that's fine.

Good news is if Mason keeps playing like this it may allow the CBJ to get something for him, and get him to a better situation.

Can't blame Steve Mason. Can't blame the defense. The offense was bottled up all night, forced to the perimeter.

Playing the right way, just nobody who can score. Oh sure, I could point out a bunch if other stuff that went wrong or mistakes in playtoo, but that's the nut of it.

Mason did his job, no complaints there. Nobody on offense did what they're being paid for.

Can't blame Steve Mason. That's a great thing to read/type. Maybe the kid is getting his head right. I sure hope so. I'm admittedly not been a fan of his but never understood rooting against him or rejoicing and mocking his downfall. I mean, at the very base of the game we need to hope for the success and support our tender, right?

Loved his game tonight. Loved Bob last night. Two youngsters vying for the job is fun to watch. We aren't often blown out this season. That's new!

Now, if we can just score.
