Organizational depth issues? It's a scary thought watching Bickel play meaningful minutes; I did not expect both McD and MDZ to be scratches. The team is good when healthy, but the injuries are exposing this team badly.
You know what, I'm ****ing shocked Torts hasn't changed his game plan up a little. This is horrid. It's embarrassing. Nash coming back is a great start but something else needs to change big time, this team is awful right now.
I agree. Dump and chase, grind. Teams all know to pack in their defense around the goal, because all we do is throw it around the boards interminably until we make a bad pass or the puck hits a rut, and we never shoot. Look at the goal. For once, we shot at the net, and stuff happened. Pavelec looks easy to beat tonight, there's a reason the Jets are under .500, but we're making too easy for him.
I defended this team against the people who claimed that this team was boring to watch last season and I truly enjoyed what I saw... But other than a few games this season, so far the on ice product has been boring at best. It's amazing how much entertainment one player can supply (talking about Nash) but it truly scares me if we're only going to be good AND entertaining to watch if he's in the line-up and contributing. These past few games have been such a let down. I'm starting to think that maybe last year WAS an anomaly and this is what we really are.
