I could go on, but my point is that the refs really aren't to blame at all.

Eberle's button hooks are so incredibly predictable and frustrating. He has a top 10 wrist shot in the league, just get it on net. At the very least it'll give the goalie trouble and maybe a rebound.

I agree but reactionary viewership is terribly annoying

Parenteau almost has more of a "punch me" face than Whitney.

Exactly. The 'next step' for this team is learning to complete those opportunities. Then they will win even more.

Hemsky is the only one with a jump in his stride today.

No, he isn't.

It's obvious.

Bingo. This board doesn't seem to get that. Everyone talks about "heart" which is overrated.

They are playing against a team that is missing 4 of their top 6 forwards.

Thats like playing against the Oilers without Hall, Eberle, RNH and Yakupov.

Tired or not, this is an inexcusable effort.

For all the *****ing and moaning in this thread, I don't even know if we're being out-chanced that badly. Which is pretty amazing considering our schedule and the reffing tonight. I don't know why I bother with GDTs, lol, it's always such drama.

Eventually this going to catch up to us.

Ralph you better teach your team on how to cycle, good god our play in the offensive zone is bad.

This team can't do nothing except shots from the point. this is very worrying.

I think Hemsky sucks on defensive effort. Let's not generalized. I give him credit for his offensive efforts.

Look up some of successful teams in the playoffs last few years. It's very very hard to find a top 9 forwards that is so weak on defensive side of the game.

Having said that, if Hemsky have a change of heart or attitude, put in a good effort on defense, he can be a key piece for us going forward.

We don't need Yakupov or Gagner to be watching a veteran that doesn't give an effort on defense.
