When are we going to find out what this supposed mysterious Fayne injury is or when he got it? In 2015? I mean it's possible he could have been on and off hurt half the year, you never really heard a peep from him about being scratched unlike Larsson.

wrong thread for this discussion, but I agree. Poni, Merrill + our first for Vanek and we'd be pretty competitive.

I get that, and even though I disagree with you I think that's a much more valid position than tanking.

I just don't get how the people who say "I want to tank and get an awesome pick!" are the same people saying "DeBoer is a retard for playing bad players over good players in a meaningless game!". Like, what? He's doing exactly what you want him to do, but you're still *****ing?

If he's a bad coach, yet is doing exactly what the poster would do, then what does that say about the poster's mindset?

It's like the same people saying "Our offense sucks, so lets get a new goalie." lolwut? Do these people even think before they type? Just common sense stuff.

Cant believe its the last game of the season, and it's devils/rangers and I can barely bring myself to care

They always slant the coverage toward the big market team. Nothing new.

Don't forget, he did have pretty major wrist surgery in the offseason. He could very easily be having complications.

I wonder how people's opinions of DeBoer would change if Fayne has indeed been secretly injured all year and was never actually a "healthy" scratch.

our draft position is much more important then winning this game... we lose today and we are 9th pick barring the lottery and what philly does. A loss helps us much more then a win

Gotta keep a leash on these players. The intensity is so high something might break out.

Another power play. I'm tired of this JUNK. It's like game 5 vs the Hurricanes in 06 when we were on the verge of elimination. Too many power play chances while the game was still in reach, but no finish.

Different bald headed idiot coach, same garbage non existence power play.

Greene-Larsson
Tallinder-Fayne
Salvador-Gelinas/Merrill/Urbom

Get rid of Volchenkov

So basically two holes to fill via trade or free agency or maybe even the draft who knows. It's not a bad lineup, it can be improved of course but that can get us into the playoffs in a full 82 game season.

I think the current team probably would have went to the playoffs if there was a full 82 game season.

I just don't have a lot of confidence in Lou anymore. I wish I did but his track record the last couple years and really since the 04/05 lockout is not good. I'm not particularly fond of this current group and bringing a lot of them back. Elias is a MUST but everybody else I'm really on the fence about. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing some new faces.

Oh sure...NOW the refs cut us a break on what should have been a penalty shot.

Should have been a penalty on us. Instead we have to watch another 40 seconds of this TRASH.

I'd enjoy seeing some Albany kids trying better than our established players giving this half added effort.

I get what you're saying, but DeBoer says he's trying to win the game and then makes decisions that do the opposite in the view of many here. Whether someone wants to tank or not is irrelevant. He is inviting the criticism. DeBoer goes on and on about wanting to win this game...and then scratches Loktionov. And it's not just today, it's been all damn season. What keeps Volchenkov in the lineup I'll never know.

Please fire Shaw and hire no new power play coach. Let Stevens, Barr, Terreri, and Deboer try to concoct something better than this. If not at least we're cutting costs in that department, and not on the players.
