Wish we were lucky enough, Clode is soo bad, what a joke this staff is just pathetic at scribbling up a gameplan for any team, let alone the 15th place Canes. Could care less about the Cup a few years back, he does not deserve a free pass for life because of it. The only thing he is preparing this team for is an early golf season. Fire the Clode.....
Absolutely. Team looks ****ing scary (on paper anyway) when everyone is healthy (and not in Sweden).
I'll say it again cause why not? If they are dropping the ball with THAT lineup you posted then I'll worry.
right now they look like a team missing it's two top players... Put Jagr with Bergeron instead of Campbell? Holy **** watch out... put Jagr with Bergeron AND Marchand with whom he was getting chemistry? boom goes the dynamite in my pants.
Since this team has not really played well since January of last year I am starting to think that Julien's lost the team, happens to all NHL coaches, this team is a shadow of last year's 1st half team.
claude is just brutal. his specialty is defense, yet our defense is terrible. i've never seen so many turnovers and 2 on 1's given up by a team. they can't even handle a forecheck or get a clean breakout. no adjustments. his balanced lines are a joke all they do is take away TOI for our good players. gregory ****ing campbell on our powerplay and the extra man on in the end? he's killing jagr. finally he puts seguin in the top 6. it only took him getting 3 goals in 3 games but he puts him with the invisible twins krejci and horton. when is horton going to be demoted? ill give him a pass on hamilton being scratched bc hes probably tired, but when is ference gonna be scratched? is redden ever gonna get a shot? i'm even more disappointed we didn't try for a better defensemen at the deadline.
things will get better when bergeron and marchand get back but i'm still worried about our defense and that claude will be stubborn with his lines.
This is a good question, I honestly have no idea, but someone who can teach the team what a pp looks like, someone who knows to put your best lineup out down a goal around the last minute. Someone who knows how to put proper lines together. Finally tonight it dawned on him to switch up the l-k-h line after totally mangaling the other 3 lines constantly. BTW I'm not directing this at you lol
I thought it was the other way around TBH. Carolina clearly outplayed the B's. While Rask let in a couple he should have had, he also made a few great saves himself.
Carolina dominated the first but generally outplayed them after I thought. Second appeared to be heavy in Boston's favour. I liked what they were doing offensively but the finish was lacking, too many premium chances generated that ended up on Caron's stick. Getting the personal back and over from Sweden should help. Defence all year has been up and down, was pretty down tonight.
Tough to lose to a much inferior team. Peters did have a fantastic game.
One negative note. I am so sick of the sloppy Lucic play. That goal, yes it was good he was in front of the net, but his turnovers tonight in both ends were absolutely terrible. He looks slow and stone handed. Really hoping this guy can turn it around.
One positive note: Lets remember the additions to the lineup we'll see in 1-2 weeks. Soderberg in, Bergeron back, and hopefully Marchy as well. Thats a scary lineup with them all in. They looked a bit better tonight, the turnovers is the big issue and lack of communication.
