I figured we'd fight for the 8 seed but just come up short

I know everyone on here is a huge fan and you don't know how important this team is to me too, but there is a middle ground between apathy and childishness.

There's no problem with complaining, there's no problem with being angry, and there's no problem with venting. But there's a point when people just start to act childish. I'm not talking about most of the people who are complaining, I'm talking about a select few. Trust me, I'm absolutely furious, but I'm not going to lose my **** on here because that won't change anything.

How do you know that no one in the organization has held him accountable, then?

If by 'being held accountable' you mean 'fired', then sure.

This would be a fair enough argument if it weren't for the fact that people already wanted Holmgren fired before the season even started.

Considering the season we had last year and the fact that Holmgren arbitrarily held on to a coach that was done with us for three games as well as the preseason we had I don't think many people expected us to do much more then possibly make the playoffs.

I am glad I'm busy & don't have the chance to watch this abortion.

It's time for Homer to go & this coming is coming from someone who's supported him more than bashed him.

Just take our licks this season, trade the upcoming free agents at the deadline, & move a player or two who's still under contract.

Next step is to hope Hextall is a good GM & hope he can have a intial splash like Homer did in his first summer.

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!
This, either stick with it and hope hope they can turn things around now,if not you still have your young guys and you can reevaluate at a latter date, or you sell off the Kimmos, Hartnell and Coburns of the group and start a rebuild. Again there is no reason to trade away a guy who has shown that he at least has 50pt a season potential at 22 cause the whole team sucks. There's just no logic to that

There's only a 12.5% chance we could land both of them if we finished in last place for the next two seasons. That's the worst part of it all.

I agree with this. ONLY the players can turn it around which will take leadership from within the room . Perhaps Vinnie will step up as the Alpha male and take over as the leader of this club .Folks can blame the D till the cows come home etc, its tough to win with ZERO goals or 1 or 2 goals per game which is glaring.

The defense had been playing very well up to tonight. Problem all year has been an unforeseen inability to score goals.

The offense has been the issue. This game has been a **** show all around but in general we can't score goals. NOBODY thought that would be a problem.

From a defensive standpoint, this team is just not very talented. Timmonen just looked lost at the side of the net on the power play goal but, hey we're paying him $6 million this year on a NMC so can't move him even if we wanted. Beyond Giroux and maybe Read and Voracek, there's probably no-else any other team would want. Poor Claude- I wonder how long it'll be before he's Richardsed? Of course, it didn't hurt MR too much so maybe Giroux's looking forward to the same.

Luke schenn will score 7 sh goals this period. After the 7th he will rip the C patch off CLaude Giroux and lead us to a Stanely Cup

I agree wholeheartedly. By no means a flawless roster, but the players have to be held accountable for their own lack of performance, and at times, even effort.

I didn't, in fact I figured they'd finish 8th in their division.

If by 'being held accountable' you mean 'fired', then sure.
Fans have been asking for Holmgren's head for a while now, he's had an iffy track record for a while now, and like I said literally everyone practical has been gotten rid of besides him at one point or another.

He's been given a lot more leeway then I think he deserves or deserved. That's why I think he's not being held accountable. It's not like people wanting Holmgren gone or this team under performing is a new thing.

it is on the players. but who assembled this pathetic bunch? Homer. it's obvious to everyone this team is not put together properly. lack of #1 D, poor D in general, not fast enough or mobile, no 2-way forward, no sniper... the list of issues on this team is endless, and it seems to get worse every year. yes the players are bad, but it's Homer's fault for putting together a crap team. he needs to go so Hextall can get in there and reevaluate the team and fix this mess. i don't have faith in Homer that he can do that. he creates holes, not fixes them.

I 100% thought they would...if they played more D. They have done that, and now can't score. Such a disgrace. All I say is, ON PAPER, do we have the 2nd worst ROSTER. ABSOLUTELY NOT!! Our D certainly needs a massive re-structure. Go do it NOW. So what if it means we then run with 2 offensive lines and 2 defensive. Don't go get 1 d-man...get 2.
