"I'm not superstitious.. But I am a little stitious." - the great Michael Scott.

Words I am trying to live by this season, crazy superstitions took a lot out of me last season. Struggling to stick with being a little stitious. I haven't posted before a game, or during in a few games, because i think last time we got the W i didn't post either. Not working apparently. Can someone with good hockey smarts explain to me why we are having so much trouble this season? I can't figure it out, obviously something is wrong. We need a win Tampa! At least you have been playing better, keep it up, points will hopefully come. No more blooper reel footage from our goalies. Play smart in our own end MAB(and all other D-men of course) Let's go Lightning!!

Also, few games ago someone was talking about Brewer getting penalized for picking up the goalie stick and handing it to him. Not sure what the rules are, but in the last week I have seen Chara, and someone in another game do this with no penalty.

Wonder if the refs from the WWE are working our game again tonight

You just answered your own question.

In an academic sense, what did Wayne Fleming bring to the team? Wasn't he like the special teams specialist?

That had been one of our team's biggest strengths. It's true we aren't getting a tremendous amount of PP's, but we didn't last season either. It was our ability to capitalize on what we did have that made us so dangerous.

There was a good portion of the season where our PP carried our offense.

Also think of this. Last season Marty Raymond spent a significant amount of time in the press box watching the game, and letting the bench know what he was seeing in real time. I don't know if they've got anybody doing that now.

Good luck tonight, guys.

Our defence is far from solid, so I'm not looking forward to facing guys like Stamkos, St. Louis and Lecavalier. If the Lightning brings its A-game, this game could turn ugly for the Sens.

Looking forward to watching Connolly.

In a shift of gears, Lightning's Brett Connolly scratched tonight, not Adam Hall as was presumed.
Looks like Connolly could be scratched tonight.

We are worse offensively, defensively, and in net (compared to the latter half of last season anyway). I also think we overachieved as a team last season, although we certainly deserved to be in the playoffs. We don't have the defense, in my opinion, to be able to go anywhere in the playoffs IF we even make it. It's also a little unfair to Roloson. I wanted to see us take a different route in the offseason to begin with, but I was very surprised that we didn't address our issues on the blueline knowing we'd be relying on a 42 year old goalie who just game off a very active, extended season. I'm not saying the defense is solely to blame for Roloson's poor play, but it sure doesn't help.

If Yzerman does decide to make some moves, I'd expect them to be for players that will help us beyond this season. We're just too many key pieces away from contending or even getting as far as we did last year to be dealing key players/picks/prospects for upcoming UFA's, unless it's a very solid defenseman or two.

To me, we need help both on defense and in goal (although Roloson still deserves some time imo), and we could also use some more energy/grit/toughness. Say what you want about it, but there have been far too many games where we look like we could use a spark. I'm not suggesting we need a 4 minute per night goon, but it wouldn't hurt to add someone who can energize the team and the crowd with some toughness and physicality.

Also, I don't mean to sidetrack this thread with trade talk, and am wondering if a Lightning rumors/what's wrong with us thread would be appropriate for this kind of talk (instead of a GDT), as there doesn't seem to be one yet in the Lightning forum.

Well, the problems are fluid with the games of the season. They are inseparable and I think trying to separate the two is helpful in one sense, as it allows a distillation of what's going wrong, but it can also get us locked into that mode of thinking, that there is some 'thing' wrong, and we can put on the blinders.

If there's a specific rumor, it should probably gets it's own thread, but it's all relevant for a 'game day talk' topic.

As long as we win tonight, that's all that matters. And it's not official yet, so we'll see.

Hope to hell that the boys show up and haven't been discouraged by the results of the last few games.

Wrong. Jimmy from Raising Hope is doing a Stammer impression.

Please don't judge us on that anthem... We usually have Lyndon Slewidge, arguably the best anthem performer in hockey, but this was pure embarrassing.
