What has he done? Regular season winning % and humiliating choke jobs in the playoffs.

He wins the battles and loses the war bc of pedantic management.

I can think of very few cases of a C being stripped and the player sticking around a lot longer....4 in TB comes to mind and I cant think of another off the top of my head.

you want him gone?
Nope never said any of that, point is it sends a message. Meaning wake the **** up and lead this team like your paid to do.

Schultz regularly blows in the playoffs and Semin would look the same under another coach. He has abysmal hockey IQ.

Which is BS, of course, but they're not gonna risk losing their regular season dominance until they absolutely have to. People aren't gonna boycott a winning RS team no matter how pathetically outcoached it gets in the playoffs.
The days of this team dominating the regular season are gone. Even winning the division is no longer a given.

The question is how long before the FO recognizes this and do what is takes to correct it, whatever that may be?

This team is still going to win the division. A rough patch in November isn't the end of the world. Chill the **** out.

If the day ever comes and Boudreau is fired, I'd love to hear what he has to say about some of the players and vice versa.

I have a feeling the Bradley stuff will be tame by comparison.

my take on this is 55 hasnt been good....just meh, the same for the most part. Excusing a defensive specialist because he was just "in the vicinity" is kind of a head scratcher....again, he wasnt in the ideal situation but he did nothing to help it either. Had had zero impact on that play as we was easily passed around twice....and again, this is the kind of thig he is supposed to excel at

im not going to be upset about some loss in November....but again, in terms of BB and his job. History is filled with coaches who were fired because star players were not producing. In the end...they need to get them to produce. Whether its getitn gthrough to them, putting them in a postion to succed, or likely both. If 8 isnt producing...its BB job to get him to. Thats the way it is and the way it has been....coaches with a lot more experience and success have been fired for that exact reason.

and as always...im not saying BB sucks, is stupid, cant coach, is a moron, that I know more, or whatever people will try to say im saying

Bruce has never been one to look introspectively for problems. He's pretty much throwing players under the bus at this point trying to get something going. Look, there is one of two scenarios going on. One, Bruce is giving the stars bad advice on offense. Or two, they have tuned him out and don't believe in what he is preaching. May be a combination of both. But the reality is that we are unbelievably predictable on offense and defenses know what our top guys are going to do before they themselves know.

Great game right up til the time their heads went in their ass.

Crazy hair behind. Trotz. Kudos for 13 years of that.

Our LH Dmen are the slowest in the league. Dump and pound green. Dump behind our lefties.

Goalies outstanding except for TV over committing on last goal.
Swedish c were awesome.

No amount of coaching would have prevented Shultz from being the pylon moron he was on the tying goal.... But u can say he shouldnt have been in that position.

Speaking of being a pylon, Carlson has been pretty bad in the D zone virtually all season. His awareness and effort seem lacking.

I don't support stripping him of the captaincy but another #1 overall pick lost the captaincy in a media ****storm, then went on to win the cup.

I see because any decent defender would have covered 2 guys at the same time.

Swweeeet. Anytime someone says Bruce has been tuned out they win like 8 games in a row.

its also fair to point out that the C was given to a guy who soon after ended up with more PPG's than anyone in history and the team/league MVP was yet even another player on the team

The whole team has abysmal hockey IQ. You could pick out 10 guys on this team like that. Unless McPhee is picking only guys with low Wonderlic scores, I think it's a reflection of a general lack of direction.

We're just as deep as the 2004 Lightning. We're just not as good as the sum of our parts.

personally I would have been happy had he covered 1....or made one of the 2 passes a little more difficult

I guess your view on this is he played it just right? It certaily wasnt an easy play but for a defensive specialist he didnt do a good job at any point on it....he really didnt
