If we traded for anyone at this point I feel like they would suck. The problem lies inside the heart and souls of the players. They need to start wanting to win and showing it on the ice. Or else we might as well lay back and enjoy our top 3 pick.
The only hope I'm holding onto right now is that we are missing 3 Top Six pieces.
That's about it.
It's a huge deal. Callahan is the pulse of this team. Without him or compete level drops the levels. The sad thing is we still have guys like Staal and Girardi who should have the same mentality as Callahan.
Outside about 5 guys the rest of our forwards are either playing up a line or in some cases three while a few don't even belong in this league.
All the home currently occupied by the Pyatt's and Powe's of this organization need to be filled with actual NHL talent. Pyatt is fine on the third or fourth, but that's not how he's being utilized because of injuries.
Calling the kids up to play difficult minutes isn't the answer. Believe it out not they're not franchise saying prospects. They would compliment our top six nicely if they were ready and had competent NHL vets to play alongside.
The good news is a shutout at the hands of New Jersey likely spurs management to make a move.
No trades. We need to keep this team together. They are a guaranteed tank. I'm only worried about Flyers and Buffalo now. They need to start winning. We need to get that top seed at the draft lottery table.
Surely you jest. I think the defense and goaltending will come around, but this team couldn't score into an open net. I've never seen a team weaker up front
Yeah I was excited before the season started. We got some depth. Nash, Steps, and Brass were looking Godly. We got a coach who could enforce some more offensive tactics. Hank and our D are some of the best in the league. I was pumped. So this Titanic impression is not only a shock but an infuriating one at that. And I don't mean the sinking of the ship, I mean the long and terribly boring movie that made me want to kill myself.
