Richards is a waste, dead weight, finished, an albatross...So when can the teflon don GM of ours get some flack for another disaster of a signing? WHat are we up to during his tenure? 10? 15? huge free agent big signing disasters?
Can add another blunder to the list when he inevitably re-signs Clowe.
To be fair, Richards did show at least something today. His shot did go off the crossbar.
What the **** has Cally or Nash done? As a matter of fact, our captain should be doing what Richards is doing, but he's probably doing his vanilla interview and trying to spin a positive twist on this game to the media.
Absolutely agree......i Called that he should be stripped of the C. He's not leading in any way, shape, or form. Period
Yea I just don't see how he acts like a captain except for maybe 1 or 2 games this year where he tried to jumpstart the team with his play. He's been so bad offensively lately. I wonder if the other plays look up to him at all. I could see maybe some of the younger homegrown guys but it just doesn't seem like he is a captain other than the letter he wears.
I think all of the emphasis on shot-blocking takes 10 points off all the defensemen's stats, plus it's going to take two years off everyone's careers.
Really think the system stifles the skill the team does have.
There's no reason Del Zotto should not be a 12 goal 30 assist player. Girardi 6-10 goals, 20-25 assists, McDonagh about the same, Staal similar, even Stralman could put up some decent numbers. This system is killing the defensemen.
i agree. What you state is not at all overly ambitious. Contributions along those lines should be expected, otherwise what's the point? If slow, stuttering and non-threatening from the defense through the forwards is all this is needed, just go find some more low-end Hamrliks and be done with it. Many players should be doing much more to contribute to goals.
Goals win games.
I'm sure Brad cares. I don't doubt that one bit. But now do something about it. He looks absolutely defeated. Not like someone who is saying "**** this, I'm going all out on this thing till I drop". More like someone who is saying "poor me, nothing is going right!"
last year you believed they could win any game even if it was by one painfully gained goal.
this year you wonder if they can score one goal much less a game winner.
ugly hockey either way
Coach Messier sounds good to me
I bet Coach Gretzky sounded unreal to Phoenix.
A great hockey player does not make a great coach. Not to say Messier would undoubtedly be a bad coach and honestly I'd be willing to try anything..Why not Messier as coach and Leetch as assistant?
