Biggest disappointment this season?

This should be an incredibly close poll due to many players performing in an underwhelming fashion.

Edit: I decided to leave management out of it and focus solely on the players.

Edit #2 - yes I know I spelled Visnovsky's name wrong. damn iPhone autocorrect!

Hillers comeback. He was a top 3 goaltender in the NHL last season before his bout with vertigo, comes back and hes .899 (i think)

Lydman, I'm not even sure if he is playing some nights.

Yeah, it's a hard question. I expected Lydman and Visnovsky to come back down to earth a bit but not to the point where they look like third pairing defensemen so I'll take Lydman as Visnovsky kinda has the broken thumb excuse. Getzlaf's production is disappointing but it looks like he's trying out there, at least far more so than in past seasons where he's put up much better numbers. Ryan flat out sucks and has been our worst top 6 forward but I don't think he's been the bigger disappointment than Getzlaf, Visnovsky or Lydman because I don't expect as much from him as the others.

I went with Hiller. I think he has only played like last year once this season. And we still lost that game, it was the LA game and we only got one point.

I'd say RPG as a whole. Bottom 6 is awful, but we expected it to be pretty bad. I'd say Getzy has been the most disappointing of the three, although Ryan, Lydman and Lubo are close.

Ryan for me. Vis, Lydman, Hiller are all coming off injuries. Perry has been essentially PPG the last 12 games. Getzlaf while not producing and still addicted to those asinine no-look passes has put out much larger efforts and is shooting significantly more than the last 2 years. The bottom 6 is what it is. Ryan just disappears way too frequently and has no excuses to be doing so.

Lol I wanted to pick all of them. But since that wasnt an option I picked the bottom 6. Surprising that nobody else has picked them. RPG gets all the blame for why we arent winning. If our bottom 6 was half decent we would have at least won some of those games. The problem is RPG isnt playing good and theres not a damn thing our bottom 6 can do about it. There soft, they get pushed around, they dont have any impact on the game at all.

But then again, I could make convincing arguments why every single choice is the biggest disappointment. The correct answer is ALL!

Hiller, even though he had vertigo... 89.7% is just not ok. Bobby Ryan is a close 2nd, as unvisible as he's been.

Vis.

RPG is always silent at this point in season (well, not so much, though), i was expecting Hillsy to be a bit shaky, and i knew that Masterton line is getting older, so the biggest dissapointement for me comes from our 2nd/3d (?) pairing that was one of the best in league last year.

It's hard to say.

I'm really disappointed with how the bottom 6 has panned out. But everyone on the list has been pretty bad.

There are too many to choose but I went with Getzlaf for the fact that I know he has the ability to take over games and carry the team himself. I want to see the pissed off Getzlaf who would go out and throw hits, get in scrums, and start fights. Show some emotion.

They`re really young with not-so-much of expierence + with no phisicality.

It`s hard to say it`s dissapointment.

When they have like...3 points each in 20 odd games they are very much a disappointment.

I'd say Hiller has been the biggest disappointment to me. But a little of that was a wishful hope that he would have have a full recovery, when I knew it was something that could easily linger on.

Other candidates to me are Lydman, Visnovsky, and Ryan. I expected Lydman and Visnovsky to take a decent size step back, in both health and effectiveness. But not that much.

Ryan hasn't really improved on his streakiness at all. He goes through periods of really bad hockey (in every aspect, effort, positioning, decision making), then will deke out a whole team and score 2 goals. That's what has disappointed me.

I'm actually only disappointed in Getzlaf's results, I think he's actually putting up better effort etc than years past. I'm not sure why opinions on Getzlaf are so divergent though. There's people saying he's not trying and shooting, and there's people who say he is.

The bottom 6 is performing pretty much exactly how I thought it would. That's what you get with all young kids with no proven track record.

I wanted to put Getzlaf up, but accidentally put "other".

Getzlaf, because he's not motivating his team like a captain should, and he's just not producing like he should.

But since I put other... I guess I could argue Randy Carlyle.
