I hope they try the 3 lines next year and pick up a winger. if it doesn't work, trade the 2C who is the least effective or less likely to sign a fair deal. Move Mitchell back to 3C and go with the more traditional 2 line system.

I loved seeing Landy rough up Parise a bit after slapping and then throwing Koivu into the boards like that.

This team is pathetically soft, especially the D... I mean who the **** let's another player spear, punch, and walk over you like Zanon did earlier.. it took PAP to stop it..

Kept watching while trying to get some work done. Avs are pretty good at pulling you back in and then giving up a heart breaking goal.

Landeskog scores to bring the team within one and everyone is fired up. Then he basically gives the Wild a goal on a silver platter. I expect that kind of pass from one of our defenseman, not from him.

The defense's inability to make a pass or hit the net is very frustrating to watch. EJ might be the only one who can actually pass but he also can't hit the net.

I also don't understand how EJ has been the best defender by miles, but doesn't get paired with Duchenes line.

Stop with the Gardiner lovefest. If Carlyle does not want him on the Leafs, I seriously do not want to watch him under Sacco.
We would pray for Hunwick to come back. Yeah this was a bad joke but I really believe that Gardiner would get killed here.

Same to an extent for MDZ. Going from playing with Staal, McD ,Girardi and Lundqvist to playing with EJ, Varly and....... would be way too much to handle for him.

Yandle will not solve this either. We have a crapload of defensive defenseman who suck defensively and offensively.

It is coaching and management that is responsible for this mess.
Even bigger mess for Seth!!!

So what is your answer...not bringing in better players because we are THAT bad?

You have to get better when you can, and trading staz can help us do that

Best to wait until our savior ROR resigns. May not be able to afford a Yandle.

I just doubt that losing Stazz for those guys would improve us in the longterm.

I have been telling everyone who wants to listen that this team HAS TO fire Sacco for over 2 years now. Until they get their heads out of their behinds and do just that, you really can not evaluate this team. We need more talent on the backend. Certainly a big Amen to that. But I believe that this would not be nearly as big of a problem under any other coach with Siemens and Barrie soon arriving or already waiting on the wings (for some reason only Sacco knows).

Trading Stastny for Gardiner would be a bad move. MDZ or Yandle are fine (though I dislike MDZ personally and do not want him). But the problem is that we are not getting Yandle for Stazz and the Rangers will not take on Stastnys contract.

So we are back to Gardiner and I really really do not want him and I am not even sure that Nonis would have the balls to trade him anyways...

EDIT: And there is always Seth Jones.....

This defense is going to award you last place till you fix it. We cannot stay this way.

A good defense can win you more games than a good offense. Look at Nashville the last few years.

"Shot from the point..........blocked"

Sacco's new strategy is to put Duchene on the ice every other shift and hopefully he'll make something happen. Not a bad strategy but still a bit sad. Maybe he's hoping Duchene will save his job just like Anderson did a couple years ago.

****ing Defense.. shooting right at another player.. are you kidding me?

Also that really shows the skill gap between say PAP and McGinn.. PAP makes a play that could have made a goal by smartly holding the puck and then passing while McGinn throws it wildly after he gets it.

He's simply not a top line guy, I can only imagine where PAP and Duchene's stats and this team would be if they had a better linemate.. he's a good 3rd liner but nothing more.

It was merely a suggestion. I would prefer Yandle over almost anyone.

Also yes Sacco must go, but the triple pylon + hunwick also needs to be eliminated.

If we had a good defense with Varly behind them...we could be a playoff team.
