I don't see much of social media calling out for Sather's head.

Forgot Nash. Also didn't see much of the first period. But that's 2 chances that I saw through 45 minutes + OT.

This team can't... And has not been able to score. They have NO pp... None. It's basically a rallying point and moment shift IN FAVOR of the opposing team every time they take liberties with our players!

Every, single time.

5 on 3 is even worse.

What did anyone expect?

Can't score, can't win.
It was fun to blame it on Hank last game... At least for variety's sake.

How about that Trottier guy, was a great assistant coach for the Stanley Cup winning Avalanche.







I like Torts, I don't want him fired.

This. And even then, we only scored 1 goal off a Capital's skate.

New York-where offense goes to die.

On an other note, what are "goals" and why is it allowed Green scored one? I don't get it. ABout 110 minutes without one now, and the one we did score was, well, kinda bouncy. Win two home games or this series ends in the 5th game.

Why do you think I told you to re-read that post? I have never said that this was all McD's fault. The blame is on both Torts (for keeping him out there too long) and McD (for not telling Torts he needed a break).
One last before I leave. I made a public mea culpa for that one I was just frustrated and pissed for reasons I stated earlier and didn't fully read. I didn't read all of it b/c you had consistently been not only fully excusing this team for this game but telling fans they shouldn't even feel frustrated and you criticized them for feeling and posting their frustrations (as Dan so coincidentally and graciously highlights an example right above this post) and I assumed you were doing it again. I assumed and there's a reason why they say what they say about assuming.

I'm not suggesting that we will suddnely turn into the 80's Oilers, but I disagree that we do not have the personnel to score goals. We play a very deliberate style of hockey that is counter-offensive. Did you ever notice that when we are in the offensive zone and the puck comes over the blue line, instead of sending it back in and quickly touching up, we go all the way back into our own zone and just sort of start all over. We ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT A ONE-GOAL GAME ON PURPOSE!

I really think the games would be a lot more fun to watch and we might even win (more) if we just unleased everyone and let our world class net minder save our ass.

Of course that's just my opinion and it doesn't mean squat at the end of the day.

This team has no structure in the defensive zone, no effective breakout plan, no transition, no utilization of the speed of the players who can fly, an easy to shut down offense that's generated from behind the net resulting in shots into a goalie who is waiting for a shot while pinned to a post. There are few rebounds because our forwards are in back of the net, not in front of it. I'm not even going to start on the PP or go on about this, because there's no point.

Here are all of your posts responding to me:

Reporting what I SAW is not pretending to be atactical genius.

You literally pointed out that if I WAS talking about game 1 then my comment made nos ense so why didn't you think to yourself "I did mention both games and this is all about game 2 so he must be talking about game 2." C'mon man

Here are the relevant parts of mine:

Other than Hags' breakaway, name me more than 3-4 quality scoring chances in the first game. I can think of maybe 2-3 more.

If you disagree with my opinion about the offense being better today, then that is fine. But can you try to answer my question about quality scoring chances? Name more than a handful from game 1. Shot totals don't tell the whole story.

You assumed "[I] was doing it again" when I was telling you my reasoning and breaking it down for you? I don't even understand how you can seriously write that.

lol.

If his point was applicable, Sather would've been canned when Myspace was relevant.
