That third goal by Canes was annoying.

Good teams don't get scored on like that.

The Homer panic trade has to be coming.

Teams falling flat and is in danger of dropping back out of playoff contention.

And this is the type of post that makes sense, thank you Beef. Not "OMG this team sucks no effort disgrace disgusting". Calling out specific players and problem and pointing out what is needed, which I agree with. 4 Dmen playing like trash, goalies playing bad, and no players for our playmakers to set up.

When is the last game Mason posted good numbers in a game. It's scary how bad his numbers are getting this year.

That plan is really working out well for Edmonton

Correct. Same problem as always. They can't get out of Dzone in any fashion that leads to offense.

EDM is doing awful, but Pitt, and Chicago are doing well. The oilers did not have a prospect like McDavid come through when they were drafting. It is all the luck of the draw.

Every NHL goalie gives up rebounds like that sometimes. The size of the rebound is more to do with where the shot hits them.

They were two extremely stoppable goals that only look amazing because they went in. Mason made them look good by being bad.

And it's ironic that you would say that when I'm one of the few not letting emotion make me look like an idiot. Good try.

So bad.

Someone said Mason didn't look "sharp", but wasn't bad and that's pretty accurate in all honesty. The problem is that he hasn't looked "sharp" since probably early December or late November. At least not for any sustained length of time. For a player that was playing so well to start, people were praising so much earlier on, and a guy who is our starting goalie and just received a three year extension we need better then that. Part of being a starting goaltender in the NHL is making big saves and just generally being dependable in net.

The D on this team is definitely worse and a bigger issue in the now, but we haven't had a long-term starter in a very long time and Mason/Emery are most definitely a problem right now.

How was Gerbes goal extremely stoppable? Was he supposed to know he would do that and elevate the puck from between his legs?

This wasn't answered in the GDT so I'll post it again:

See, I never played hockey therefor I have no idea what the fundamentals are..

However, don't they teach you to get your BODY in front of the puck when trying to keep the puck in the offensive zone as a defender? Or do they shy away from this since it can cause a defender to get his legs wrapped up while trying to turn?

Ahh people hear the next Crosby & lose it over McDavid. Truth is he's not on the level of Crosby when Crosby was his age.

The draft is still a year & a half, things can change.

There's nobody on Chicago that's a 100 point or generational player really. There's a couple of relatively high echelon point producers on there, but they're a great team because they're well-rounded and well-built from good management. Guys like Taylor Hall, RNH, Eberle, and potentially Yakupov aren't much worse if any worse then Patrick Kane and Toews. Problem with Edmonton is that's all they have and their management is probably the worst I've ever seen for a franchise. Like, ever. Even with other teams Colorado has managed to make the playoffs in the recent past and they're on the upswing after drafting guys like Mackinnon and Landeskog that aren't any better then the top guys in Edmonton. Yet they're not nearly as bad of a team or franchise.

Come on... he got embarrassed and he absolutely should have saved that, be realistic.

I thought Mason played average.

The skaters in front of him played much worse.

I am realistic. That move executed that well would beat any goalie most times.

Keep pretending you are being realistic by blaming the goalie when the team was dominated territorially and in shots.

Of course. I will be the first too say, that Crosby was superior. But, McDavid is arguably the best prospect since Crosby. McDavid is at a 1.72 ppg pace, and during Crosby's first year he had a 2.28. So, of course Crosby was a superior play when it comes to point production. McDavid is still one hell of a hockey player though.

Duncan Keith is about to win his 2nd Norris. He was picked in the 2nd round so your right that tanking isn't the way to go. Building a blue line is.

Simply put...they are getting lazy. They pulled off some wins in games they overall didnt play well and it went to their heads. They have gained a lot of confidence offensively but have become increasingly lazy in the defensive zone. You can almost smell goals coming now, especially on their failed clears.

Maybe not pushing this one to OT will wake them up for tomorrow. If this team gives 60 minutes...they will win most nights. IF is the key word there.
