Remember the old days when they used to threaten players with a trade to Winnipeg?

Yeah, just embarrassing. Vinik does deserve better. Best owner we've had and this is the product on the ice for him. Something tells me they won't match season ticket sales next year.

We look like the Jackets pre-Sanford. I think Moo gave us an infection or something, put something in the water..

No heart. I sure hope they enjoy losing because it will stay this way until we start doing something about it.

New proposition: For all the upcoming GDTs Days, leave the OP blank. No fancy graphics, videos, the effort you normally put into them from now on until this team earns the fancy GDTs back.

Time to start blackmailing this team. Strike fear into them.

Double post is double.

Don't know why it did that.

The longer this goes, the higher the chain the problem moves, in my opinion.

I'm baffled by those who have been criticizing Garon lately.

Bolded. We arent scoring, and most guys do not look intense at all. The gold star of the game for me though goes to Pyatt. He is working it out there. If everyone was hustling like him I feel the scores of the last few games would look a little different.

Our defense is obviously weak, we can't match up with other teams lines with the group of guys we have now. Don't know how that is going to get fixed.

Our goal tending also is not going to win us any games. We do not have a number one goalie anymore. As much as I would like Garon to be one.

We have too many gaps to fill in this team to try to think like we are going to repeat last year. It is not coach. No coach in the world could pull off a good team with the current roster we have now (specifically D/goalie). Its a sad feeling but the season is slowly slipping away.

Haha, I'll try to do something different. We need a change up.

F. a combination of the players

We don't have the best team, but our players can win and beat anybody. We've done so earlier in the season against very very good teams. Right now we can't beat anyone. I Believe the problem right now is all mental. We're seeing the worst from a lot of guys. We've lost our swagger, our never say die attitude, our intensity. We've lost the things that made us. We aren't playing like that team that wouldn't quit or go away in the playoffs. After the other team scores, we die and shut down. We're not hungry, and we are going no where and other teams are going to keep coming at us. I don't know how but we need to get out of this funk.

Agreed. Poor guy. Dude made some excellent saves tonight and I was partly glad to see him rage after that 5th goal. Pathetic teammates need to see somebody get pissed.

Garon made one big save tonight. He also let in 2, arguably 3 bad goals that should be stopped more often than not. Including another weak ass short side goal on the 5th one.

No one is getting off the hook right now.

I would say anyone not named Lecavalier, St Louis, Stamkos, or Hedman should be on the block right now to bring in a real defender and or a goalie.

Something has to be done. I think SFY waits until the end of this road trip. If we dont get at least 3 of the remaining 4 points, we will see something happen to that effect.

A lot of times, teams like to make trades in the middle of a road trip so a new guy can join the team on the road and have a few days to settle in with the guys, not worry as much about the logistics of stuff at his new "home" and just play.

I hate to see this with the Lightning. I'm really pulling for them. I think Yzerman and Boucher are great, and they have some great foundations and some good role players, but they need to keep adding.

IMO, you guys will see a deal made very soon.
