No one player should have to hold onto the puck for an extended period of time and be mister hero. Nice if they do, but passing should be the first option. And keep moving, keep getting open.

Brodeur scored more goals than we did tonight. Sounds good.

I would be inclined to agree. The question is: fire Tortorella now or once the season ends?

You can't blame Gaborik and Richards for their failures on this team. The coaching staff is forcing them to play uncomfortably to say the least. Torts and Sullivan need to open up the offense, if they don't, they need to be fired immediately. Yes they were successful last year, but last year we had a different group of players and Torts clearly doesn't want to acknowledge that the current system simply does not work with this group of players.

Something isnt right.
I can't stand both Gabby and Richards but I still think Torts and Sully are to blame.

Torts has repeatedly said they don't go over offense with this team. So..what kind of coach do we have? Plus, the line shuffling is pissing me off. How are players supposed to click with one another when Torts has them promoted/demoted as the game goes by?

Really? Our top line is exactly what you describe yet how that working out? We have the softest team in the NHL. It's obvious we are unable to impose our will on an inferior opponent because we lack heart. Prust was a huge loss not replaced and forts has lost this team. Richards ****en sucks!

not only that, but I am starting to question the teams overall level of hockey sense and talent.

struggle to put a few passes together on the PP

Choices made WHILE on the PP

I'm talking everyone. Top to bottom.

the coach just needs to tell the team, 'you won't get benched for making a mistake on defense'. the team is just so tentative and scared...of their own coach. that's how i see it, at least. they take very few chances. and that means they score very few goals. fine if the team gets gifted the first goal, but in general, it sucks.

The team lacks true offensive firepower. A couple of forwards out of 12 does not cut it. The system can only do so much. The guys out there, skating on the ice with sticks in their hands CAN.

Its the personnel.

People cheered when the players came out, but there were quiet a few boos
