A top line left winger wont get you closer to a cup?

Did you hear that Joe Thornton is a free agent after this season? Can't wait!

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

Vanek has speed, is skilled with the puck and can score.

I agree with this.

We can use injuries as an excuse all we want, but the Devils have injuries as well.

I don't see this team going anywhere right now. Their a bad hockey team.

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.

Considering that he's a free agent after this season and that we aren't making the playoffs, no it won't get us closer to a cup this year.

This team needs a coaching change. This squad should not be so lethargic all of a sudden.

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.

Scotty Bowman couldn't win with this lineup.

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.

Safe to say that no-one really showed up.

Crowd? The MSG crowd is not what it used to be. Unless it's a big playoff game MSG is cavernous

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.

We're to soft for Thornton. He's not coming here.

All of a sudden? They were lethargic for long stretches last season.

Nash, Callahan and Hagelin will not fix the issues.

We can all hope and wish but the problems run muuuch deeper.

This is becoming real ugly
