First of all, let me start by saying what I'm about to say doesn't mean there aren't other issues on the team. This, however, is the single biggest one.

Ryan Kesler is by far the most important player to this team, and he's broken. When Kesler is playing well, the effect goes through the lineup more than any other player bar none. It takes pressure off the Sedins, and sometimes even forces them into easier matchups, and it makes it so that guys like Higgins, Hansen, etc. can just go out and fly around and play their games without the pressure of knowing if they don't produce like top 6 forwards, the team just flat out won't win.

Kesler is the engine on this team, and he's injury prone and it freakin' murders us in terms of the trickle down effect it has on our lineup.
Well, what do we expect, really? Take out a 2C with no one to replace him, and no 3C, while having no top six winger to boot and you have a recipe for failure. I agree that Kesler is the key cog to this team, and with him out, we don't seem to have any sort of identity. We don't know what style to play with him out.

My last time was in 2006. The 1040 call screener asked me what my question was, I told him it was about Cloutier being traded and he told me that it wasn't going to happen and to call back when I thought of a better question.

I haven't thought of a better question.

Just listened to that as well...

Sometimes I wish they would let another caller come on and then allow both callers to have some sort of on-air debate/smackdown session...

That is a recipe for a slow start and fast finish. We had a good start. Outside of injures and a roster holes, not sure what can be blamed for the current state of affairs besides AV/MG.

You have another hour. Not sure if they're taking any calls during that hour or what. Don't listen that often as I used too.

Hey, at least we have our first round pick.

Rangers are sucking just as hard and Columbus has theirs.

Small victories, etc.

tbf he didn't stick with Florida either. Not surprising; not a fast or remotely gritty player but very skilled. Tailor made for the KHL.

Rangers have Kreider, Stephan, Miller, Hagelin ETC as young players in the system. They're Ina much better position than us IMO.

This is on Gillis' face. The goalie farce should have been solved right after the CBA was signed.

And AV should have never started the year here.

What an arrogant SOB. This season has been so disappointing. At least if there was entertainment value...but there isn't.

Oh sweet Jesus, I've had the TV on mute while listening to the Team 1040 postgame shenanigans and what-do-ya-know, I finally look at the TV and it's the replay of tonight's game.

CONGRATULATIONS UNIVERSE, YOU WIN!

I agree. I felt from the beginning that this goalie situation would backfire on them. I think it has and I think it is effecting the team internally. Also the wasted cap space.

He might not be able to get anything for Luongo anymore and the only way he might be able to save face is to trade schneider now.
