None of this says he is NHL-ready.

Sbisa has the blame here? Seriously? Hes been quite good the past couple games, and almost scored the winner tonight. Give it a rest.

Sbisa was completely out of position, and failed in his coverage. I'm not saying he is the reason we lost, because this is a team game, but he definitely has some responsibility on that last goal. He was too focused on the puck carrier, and he left a man wide open. He needs to focus on his responsibilities, not someone else's.

He made some great stops and ya he lets in a weak goal... but so what. if we had switched it so the soft goal didn't go in and the grade A chances got by then we woulda lost by a couple..

How about you score more than 1 goal offense? Bobrovsky looked like he didn't have to make any great grade A scoring chance saves.. Sbisa rattled one off the iron, that was about it. And to me etem's goal on bobrovsky was kinda soft.

To be fair to Bobrovsky, the puck was rolling when Etem shot it. That's going to make it tough to get a read on, and the follow through suggests the same.

Go kick Dallas's ass tomorrow night!

P.S. If you guys don't want Etem, we'll gladly take him. That kid is good!

We're not in Los Angeles, but that's okay. Most people don't get it unless they live here.

I've been cheering for the Jackets all season. Not against Anaheim, of course, but it's hard not to like that team. There's a lot of heart on that team, and Bobrovsky is playing ridiculous hockey right now.

i'll take the point, we outplayed them but bobrovsky stole one. our PP sucks, Fowler is such a non threat with the puck, teams don't even bother to cover him unless he has the puck a long time. At some point Cam has to contribute on offense

Maybe I'm a little confused because my Cincinnati Reds are playing against the Los Angeles Angels tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure they still play in Anaheim.

Seriously though, I always try to fly into John Wayne instead of LAX. Some of us know the difference.

Still a fan of the Ducks - except when they play Columbus, Hopefully they will again.

How long ago was that? why do these other guys deserve to be just mediocre to below average many nights?

alot of you were also so sure Etem didn't deserve to be here, yet he was given an opportunity and ran with it, with a second recall. Sami should get the same chance

gotta give credit to Columbus.. they played well. They seem to match up against us well, too in the other games we played with them.

That being said, those guys had almost half their starting lineup out... this shouldn't have been even close

We need Sami on the PP so badly. This team just looks awful without him on it.

We need Bonino on the PP. it's failing due to a lack of puck retrieval and crashing the net by the forwards down low, not because we don't have Vatanen on the point.

Besides - still can't call him up without demoting Holland/Palmieri/Etem. That hasn't changed in the last 24 hours.

It's never looked good with him on it either. So stop with the "all our problems would be solved if we just played Sami" line. You have nothing to base that on other than your irrational man crush on Sami. It's really wearing thin. You're making ennok seem rational.

Trade Sbisa.

Beauch-Souray
Fowler-Lydman
Allen-Vatanen

No point in having Sbisa here. All he does is make mistakes. Vatanen is a must for our PP. I think Murray sees it the same. Would not be surprised at all to see Sbisa traded by Wenesday
