The rest of the calendar year? That's a little much.

At least we're not calling for the coach to be fired if we get off to an 0-3 start, the way another organ-eye-zation in this area has.

You must have a long ignore list because I think that's been mentioned qutie a few times in passing.

Well I mean firing Pete has been discussed but not literally at THIS point in the season. More like late November/early December at earliest if the team gets off to a bad start and isn't scoring goals after 20-25 games or so. And I don't think it would ever happen that early anyway, but Lou didn't spend all the money he spent with the trade for Schneider to settle for a third playoff-less season out of four either. I think there is a point of no return this season, I'm not sure when that is exactly though.

Look at the schedule and tell me two easier games than the Oilers and Flames until 2014. I don't believe there are any.

Tampa October 29? Buffalo November 30th perhaps?

This team only fires just before the season ends, not at the beginning.

I thought he meant "fan talk" about a firing.

Fans seemed to want Pete first after our first loss

and before someone points to MacLean, the season indeed was over (as the final standings proved).

I think Fayne listened to that Sesame Street video before his latest interview lol. I'm shocked he hasn't gone off yet.

I'm all for people trying to brighten the mood but let's be honest...bad two thirds of a season last year, another tumultuous offseason, all the gloomsayers predicting us for 14th and 15th in a 16-team conference and a bad start this year not exactly disproving those predictions, it's not a surprise we're a bit 'tense'.

Post all the videos you want but we need some goals and a ****ing win, period. Tonight would be a good time for it.

Well we did get goals Friday night. Team shows it has the chops to score, but we can't be as sloppy anymore. Need to tighten up and not give up high quality chances the other way.

Every backup summons the goalie abilities of Patrick Roy whenever we face one.

Also, forgot to give live to the GDT. If only Sam were around to yell at Pete for a bit.

DeBoer strikes me as the type of coach who is more concerned with playing favorites as opposed to icing the best team possible. There's no other explanation for Fayne sitting than that.

Even if Pete decides to scratch Brunner and Larsson tonight.
larsson has not played that well not sure what everyone is watching ...in my opinion he has been responsible for 3 or our 7 goals against..

but i agree not a must win that is silly..... i think its important to get two points here but to say its a must win is silly

I can see him being responsible for the goal against the Pens a bit, and maybe the first Grabner goal. But both Grabner goals were softies and the whole team played it badly.
