Over the last few games, I've felt the PP looks terrible, except for when they score. It's either a goal or the other team has the better chances. Last night, the two PP we scored on lasted a total of 24 seconds. The other 4:53 was garbage. Minnesota seemed the same way.

I'm with you Pete, it seems like others were not watching the same game as I was. Nash played hard, again. Some folks have their mind set and nothing that happens in reality can change that.

I hope we keep Nash. I have to believe there are 29 other teams and fans who would love to have him on their team. The Nash bashers just mystify me.

And those that aren't critical of Nash during his periods of non-motivated play mystify me as well.

There is a place in the middle that Nash lives. Worth 10 million for 25 games, 7.8 million for another 20 games. The rest of the season, 5 million. I'd rather he play be worth 7 million for 50 games and play at a 10 million pace for the playoff push and the playoffs.

Maybe so, but the point is that athletes at or near the top of their profession need to have that will to win, and killer instinct. I dont think there is a winning culture in place with the CBJ and that requires a culture change.

I will give you a Aaron Portzline quote from the Dispatch. Regarding what we need out of a President and GM, he said you "better be G** D*** obsessed with winning hockey games" and from the top down, I dont think anyone in this organization is.
