At least I don't have to watch a full 82-game season until maybe next season something happens again. Trade Weiss or Kulikov. Do something Tallon the product on the ice sucks so maybe some trades could get me interested for a few days until the new guys start to suck.
Semi-seriously though, we need our guys back pretty ******* fast if we want to have even the slightest chance to compete. Then again we won't so...well we suck.
We currently seem to have no lines and no pairings, just seem to put anybody on the ice at any time and it isn't working. We need to try and develop some chemistry by having the guys play consistently together. Definitely saw Ellerby do three consecutive shifts as part of three different pairings.
Think I am going to give up on this game for now and watch the rest in the morning.
I don't wanna get all doom and gloom 5 games in, but holy mother of pearl... It has looked like we're on the PK all night when it's even strength, and the first goal they scored on the PP didn't even make me mad. It looked like the only possible outcome.
Philly's forecheck has been tenacious. Our has been nonexistent but for that 3 minute stretch where we actually got a couple of chances.
I feel like we're missing Garrison and Gudbrandson's physical preference on D. I'm not sure what else we're missing, but good god, I hope they find it soon...
