I know that they looked horrible and were dominated in that period but so were the Kings this afternoon.
Doesn't mean they'll be bad all season,........................................... ............ just god-awful so far.
And then you look at the star players of LA's age compared to ours and realize they didn't lose their top two defensive defensemen.

I think we really need to spilt up Dats & Z, I don't think we have the talent to stack the lines, especially against the blues. I also think it's only a matter of time before Nyquist is up here, I'd give it 5 more games before he's up full time.

It's not like we're icing a bunch of AHLers, there is some elite talent out there. Granted there are some big question marks on the back end but this team is much better than their first period showing would indicate.
I don't know why people are upset. The only way you could possibly be unprepared for what you're witnessing is if you were a Holland apologist who sincerely believed Holland did the best he could during the off-season.
We'll be better than what we see here, but there is absolutely no source of motivation or energy on this team. The holes on this team have been patched and band-aided for a few years running now, while the integral pieces get older themselves, to the point where they can no longer carry the load.
