We have to go roughly 14-6 for 93 points. Now, 93 points may not be required to make the playoffs this year, but since the lockout that's been the average required. It's very tight and we have a really hard schedule for the rest of the year.
Awful game, and they decide to show up at the last minute..
I hope they can somehow manage to make the playoffs this season, but I can't see it happening considering how crappy we have been playing in our last ~10 games..Upcoming games are also against some very tough opposition.
Just what I wanted. I originally wanted us to do REALLY BAD this season because the benefits faaaaaar outweigh the temporary failure. I just hope burke holds on to the draft pick for this year and we continue to tank! Can you imagine us ending up in the 9-10th spot AGAIN this year and end up picking outside the top 10? Makes me wanna punch a hole in a ********** wall.
1. Finally a coaching change
2. We'll finally get rewarded for YEARS OF FAILURE (high draft pick)
3. 2012 is a deep draft so being in the top 10 is a must for this crappy team.
If we had better goaltending, the game would have been tighter. Goaltending is killing us right now, sure, Reimer made some good saves near the end when the game was already out of reach but that's a little too late.
We need to address the goaltending situation. Bring in Khabibulin and see what happens.
You still think we can get a 1st for the invisble man when we needed him the most, this was the most important stretch for this team and I think he has 1pt in 8 games. 5 to 5.5M per year? His agent truly believes he is worth this? Give your head a shake.
