If I see one more weak ass chip pass in the defensive zone, I'm gonna -Mod edit- blood.

I keep reminding myself not to overreact and that Bolland will be useful in the playoffs when the style of play changes. It's getting harder and harder to remember that...

Talk about people on a ledge, you would have an entire stadium lose their minds if they blow a lead, pretty sure they are setting up champagne for this win.

I wanted Gaustad at the trade deadline last year because he's good at the dot and he's a big dude.

But, Nashville gave up a lot for him and he's being paid way too much for a 4th line center who doesn't score.

I guess that's just not what I think of when I hear "simplifying the game."

I always think it means stop trying to make the pretty, low-percentage plays and start making the uglier, high-percentage plays.

Needing to skate harder or pass to someone on your own team isn't really something I associate with simplifying, because it's just doing what you're supposed to be doing anyway. You'll have to skate hard or pass to the correct team whether you're playing a "complex" or a simple game.

Apparently this crew missed the memo from Bettman, hawks win at all cost.

And if, by the grace of god they made it to the SCF, they might as well forfeit because there's no chance they beat an Eastern Conference team.

One game is nothing to draw anything from. It just isn't.

The MUCH bigger issue is the compete lack of size/physicality of our forwards. I can take this loss, no biggie, great run but night in and night out we get smacked around at every turn. If we can't out speed/skill teams they grind us to dust, which is how the playoffs are played.

People will reply about 24 without a loss and I get that but I'm telling you right now this team is in need of some bangers up front who can play.

Bollig is a joke and Carsillo is a 4th line winger at best.

Yep and I hope Q leaves CC in net for the 3rd so Ray is fresh for Sunday. Crawford would like to have a few of these goals back but Colorado is the vastly superior team tonight and deserve this blowout victory.
