Just before I leave... 130 members and more than 300 guests, I guess there's a lot of interest in this game after all

The good news is Hextall will clean house and whip the organization into shape from top to bottom.

You mean the players he signed and traded for? No idea why anyone would blame him for that.

Are you people serious? Show of hands, how many people DIDN'T think we'd make the playoffs this year? ALmost everyone on this board thought we would. We have a TALENTED team on paper. This is on the PLAYERS. They're underperforming and don't have any guts whatsoever.

Ever since JVR I'm so leery of giving up on young guys though. Still, even with JVR I knew he was at least a 25 G, 60 P player at his best and with Couturier I still see a lot of great promise. With Schenn it's just...blegh. Nothing stands out in any way.
Expect that Schenn was on 45 point pace last year and again this year. He is still in his 3rd season.
JVR's 2nd year...44 point pace...3rd year 45 point pace.

DON"T GIVE UP ON A JUST TURNED 22 YEAR OLD #5 OVERALL PICK...especially when we are talking rebuild!

Yeah. Homer is to blame for this **** show. He should be fired, but not there's not much he can do about 18 skaters collectively not giving a ****.

Edit: sarcasm very heavy.

But his job is to analyze players character, compete level and skill. Im not letting th players off the hook at all, but Homer put them together.

I don't have much else to say, Schenn is not this teams problem. How about the 15 million tied up in Mez, Kimmo and Hartnell who have all been terrible and worse them the affoentioned 22 yr old? I think they're a bigger problem.
Games played is kind of irrelevant here. He has NHL experience and he was drafted a long while ago at this point. Don't know why you're acting like he wasn't drafted high either he's a ****ing fifth overall. Being tied for the team lead in points isn't a big thing either exactly when we're the worst offense in the league.

You also know it's possible to criticize more then one problem at a time right? It's possible to say Schenn is falling short of his development and potential while also not absolving others of blame?

Like I said before, in terms of firings literally everyone has been blamed or held accountable except for Paul Holmgren. Literally everyone practical.

He put together a team everyone thought would compete for a division title this year, yet now that they're underperforming it's his fault? It's Homer's fault that Giroux hasn't scored a ****ing goal all season? It's Homer's fault that guys like Simmonds (who everyone on this board prior to this season said he was pretty much untouchable) are playing like ****? Spare me.

Seriously, sit some players. Sit Giroux and Simmonds and bring up McGinn and Rosehill. Sit Timonen and Coburn. Bring in Gervais and Mez.

I'm not one who likes to question the effort-level of pro athletes, but tonight it is just to blatantly obvious to ignore. It's like they packed it in after the Caps went up 1-0 (despite outplaying them to that point).

Us here thought we would make the playoffs cause we are fans and are somewhat blind to real issues. Everyone else said we have an awful defense and wouldn't make the playoffs, guess who was right ?

Caps fan here not trying to piss everyone off-I wouldn't go after the GM for this season. The reality is the team is not all that different from the past couple teams when they have been a good and even viable team in the playoffs. A team has to play well, and the flyers haven't been doing that.

Washington isn't all that different, they play inconsistently aswell.

Its a matter of playing hockey, just trading players isnt going to solve everything.

By the way, my CSN feed died right when the second period started. It's just been a black screen since then. What's up?

It's everyone's fault in this organization. It is a losing culture. This is pathetic. Everyone must go.
