Time to break up the Stepan line. It was good but that was a stretch against definitively bad teams. Those three hasn't dominated as a line in the last bit of play. Those three together isn't what's making things happen on that line, anyway. Put Stepan back with Nash and go from there.

If "ifs" and "buts" were candy and nuts, we'd all have a merry Christmas.

I don't give a flying **** what events transpired before. Hank's family could have been abducted by the CIA with black bags in front of his own eyes before that shot was launched and it still would have been a bad goal. The shot was in the center of the net and bounced off his damn chest and into the goal.

Here's something a bit more telling.

59 gp, 14g, 10a, 24p

Take a guess at what those numbers are and when you find out the answer, ask yourself if that's acceptable from your captain.

The only other team I could see being argued as better is the 11-12 team. Not like we were all that special with Torts the years prior to 11-12. We missed the playoffs in 09-10 so I'd say that would be the worst team. Maybe see how the rest of the season plays out before declaring it the worst team in years.

Blaming Hank for this loss is irrational. He let in one bad goal that decided the game but he made a ton of great saves early on. We were just pushed around by a bigger, stronger team. The finesse was not there, either. Too many bad decisions with the puck.

It's not a bad team. But it is a really frigging stupid team. Some of the stuff they do in the offensive zone just leaves scratching my head.

The team seems to play a tighter more put together game with Talbot in net. I don't get it, but this is the way it seems to me. The D sucks playing in front of Hank.
They bank too much on Hank bailing them out. The players get too comfortable with Hank in net. The team tries harder when Cam is in net.. It's subconscious I'd assume.

Just look at the fans: We're slamming Hank, calling him mediocre when he's posting up a 92% save percentage despite a miserable start, we're calling it his worst season etc. That says everything really. We're so spoilt with him so that we, and his fellow teammates, are shocked when he doesn't bail us out every night.

Couldn't agree more. Team is always shaky in front of Lundqvist. When Talbot plays, it's a different team out there.

No doubt in my mind Talbot starts tomorrow, and we out shoot Vancouver 35-20, and win the game 2-1 while giving up limited chances.

The team needs a more consistent effort. I don't think it's because they try to play a more sound defensive game in front of Talbot, because it wouldn't make sense not to give it 100% every game, I just think the team actually is that wildly inconsistent.

I disagree. What I saw was a team that didn't put in 50% of the effort to play some semblance of decent hockey. That last PP, their offense with the extra man, just putrid and horrid.

If you really think this team "sucks," then it's obvious you weren't watching it in the dark ages.

It's a mediocre squad that is a playoff team but needs a second goalscorer on the squad like cancer needs a cure.

Stop it. Just stop. Henrik hasn't been good this season either. He deserves blame too.

We had 4 SOG in the 3rd. Bruins had more than double that, and simply just had the puck way more. I don't understand how people are blaming Hank when the team in front of him did absolutely NOTHING offensively for the final 40 minutes of the game. Hank is not the reason we lost.

This. So, so, so much ****ing this. This team is borderline retarded.

Add another goalscorer in and it solves a lot of problems. They'd still be retarded, but they'd put pucks in the net.

It always was except for people who, based on a small sample of games spent handing the puck to Nash, thought Stepan was Mark Messier.

One thing encouraging is seeing Nash has recovered. He played a decent all around game and got involved.

Staal is still good positionally, he is just abysmal while handling the puck.
