Oh well maybe this team really does suck and it was all smoke and mirrors .. Grabvoski worth $5 million why ? cus he had 3 weeks of being unstopabble and then is invisible for the rest of the season ? he has pure European player written all over him streay streaky steeaky
They were pretty bad, if you ignore the "42" shots on goal they had defensive lapses and giveaways every time you turn around. Coupled with their in ability to muster much of anything on the power plays that were given to them at opportune times to get back in the game. A few shifts from the 4th line here and there and Kuli / Bozak playing well aside from that it was a lackluster (at best) performance for most of the rest of the roster.
Well it's time to push the panic button now. I thought this slide was nothing to worry about until I saw the way they came out the past two games. That early goal deflated them for the entire first period. Wouldn't be shocked if Burke rages and makes a deal soon.
8 years and no playoffs.. how do people in this organization keep their jobs is beyond me
So many fans seem content with mediocrity.
Phaneuf's minutes need to be taken down a notch. Yes he is a nice offensive defenceman, he brings a solid physical edge but hes a mess in his own end. I said it the other night and got ripped by many but this guy isnt a #1 Dman because he simply doesnt know what to do defensively most of the time.
Now you 20+ posters who jumped on me last week when I suggested this team might be headed for a swoon ... get off.
using his big frame to create space and his skating ability to find open lanes to drive the net. He stands 6-3 and is a natural goal scorer with plenty of confidence.
He's a scout's dream in the way he prepares himself and plays an unselfish game, making smart decisions with the puck. With his bloodlines, he certainly understands what it will take to make it at the next level.
Blue and White disease is back! This time in the form of Connolly Crabb and Komi****arek. Get rid of them and play people who actually have to fight for a position and dont feel entitled to one like these 3 do.
Get a real goalie. Period. Watch Kipper carry this **** Flames team on his back to the playoffs while we ride out Dustavsson and Greimer to our hundreth straight 9th-12th finish. Burkey says he builds his teams from the net out and has yet to put an above average goaltender between the pipes on his watch. Time to put up.
