we have played 20 good minutes, out of a possible 160 minutes, soon to be 180.

Essentially 1 good period in 3 games. That's unacceptable.

I think Billy hit the nail on the head to be honest. The team isn't in synchronization. I think we have some serious chemistry issues going on right now. Nobody knows where to be, or seemingly what to do. They are all watching each other trying to figure out what the other is going to do. Just not a good way to play hockey. It'll just have to be hammered out.

Why would that guy get kicked out? For the way he looks?

The season is too short to hope we find chemistry. Every team had a short training camp. The lack of effort and stupid plays shouldn't be happening.

Too cute

This team is way too "cute," as Dineen would say.

I think it's an actual problem; that's why I'm not putting it on the GDT/I'm starting a thread for it.

We're not as bad as the last two nights, but the lack of physicality, imo, is a problem.

The team plays defense like it doesn't give a ****. Leaving goalies out to dry. If not for Theodore last night, we lose like 8-0.

Our scoring lines aren't that skilled in comparison to the rest of the league, yet they play like it's a video game. Deking for no reason, east/west style hockey.

This is why we continue to suck so much even strength/we're better on the powerplay.
We're all flash. Heck, our 1st line LW's nickname is Flash!

Kovalev is not an NHL player anymore. He scored 3 points on Opening Night because Huberdeau was amazing.
He might have some more nights like that because he still has nice hands, but the cons outweigh the pros. The guy has to be one of the slowest players in hockey right now, and he continues to turn the puck over because he thinks he's still in his prime or something. Always look for the highlight reel play when he's just not that player anymore. Remember this guy only scored 1 goal in the KHL last year.

We're also undersized in the middle, which has been a problem for awhile obviously. We need Goc back because Mueller should be on the wing.

Goc and Bergenheim at least do the little things and play with energy/actually chip in offensively, as well.

And Versteeg too, we need him. Even though he's one of the "cute" players, he's a lot better than the garbage we're putting in there to replace him.
Santorelli, Upshall, and Kopecky have no business on any 1st line. Upshall and Kopecky are nice checking line guys and Santorelli is............no comment.

I agree about the lack of effort, but something has got to give, because it just isn't working out there. Not sure what the solution is.

im gonna give kovalev like 2 more games, im pretty much done with him. he doesnt skate or try at all. we gave him a shot, and either his age has really caught up to him or he just doesnt care, he wont have a roster spot when goc comes back anyways.

I think Weiss is sick. Something isn't right. No way does a guy in a contract year play this poorly. They're also missing Versteeg.

The only bright spot on the second line is Mueller. Kovalev has been everything we were concerned about. Haven't seen Hubs since the first game. Dineen needs to wake him.

Third and fourth line need to skate hard every shift. Only Skille and Smithson have been decent in all three games.

Goalies have played well, imo, especially since they've been left out to dry.

His sense of urgency is what I would expect from a 40 year old in a beer league.

He is just trying to show Tallon what the team would be like without him

I'm back, not as mad, but still not happy. I think if we lose 3 straight I don't think we make the playoffs to be honest.

Can we get a damn body on a guy standing in the middle of the crease? Seriously.

Nice job in front of the net by Weaver.

I think the last time I saw two consecutive games this brutal was back when we considered Jay Bouwmeester a sure fire future all star.
