1. Eugene Melnyk:
1a.Eugene Melnyk
1b.Eugene Melnyk
1c.Eugene Melnyk

Basically tying our teams budget tighter , the stupid CSI crap and an embarrassment to Our fine city and senators organization. You cant build a Stanley cup contending team on a budget F***ing idiot!!.

2. Brian Murray: the Alfie affair, not being aggressive enough in free agency our only free agency is Joe frickin Corvo(who is now on waivers), could we not have gotten

3. Players: I swear some(most of them) have no idea how to play D, them.

4. Paul MacLean: the system of play, the non existant D,I swear we give up more turnovers questionable coaching decisions ( juggling Ryan when he's best with Turris and MacArthur) constantly playing Anderson above Lehner who at times has been better.


I swear we better not trade our 2015 1st, so help me god there will be an angry mob.

Murray is not to blame for the Alfie fiasco. That was squarely on Melnyk because an owner willing to spend to the cap would have allowed Murray to go get Ryan and Alfie instead of just one or the other.

Maclean needs to take a large part of the blame for this season.

It's starts with trying to force a new partner to Karlsson instead of Methot.

Then not giving his #1 centre and best forward stability by changing his wingers every two games

playing Phillips on the 1st PP unit or any offensive role.

and screwing up Lehnher after he just won us 3 games, put us back to 500 and got 1st star of the week.

There are plenty of bad decisions this year.

How about changing all the lines the game right before the Olympic break. Michalek, Spezza and Zibanejad were clicking, that line got us two wins in that very same week. Then he screws everything up by changing the top 6.

Hoffman looks good right now. Good for him, but Da Costa was actually producing points.

What about Cowen who played like **** all season but had all the chances to find his game back while playing top 4 minutes. Wiercioch played way better than him, offensively AND defensively. Even Corvo was better. At least, he's doing what he's supposed to do. move the puck, produce points.

Maclean takes it for me.

Melnyk may be cheap, but this team made the playoffs with an AHL payroll last year.

Letting Alfie go was the only beginning of the disaster, naming Spezza as the captain turned out to be the worst possible move.

From a pure outsider perspective, I am sensing the players do not respect him as a captain especially guys like EK, there is some rift going on in this locker room. They are not on the same page, players do not trust each other, and some have no faith in the coaches any more... BM should know better..or maybe he just has no clue what he is doing any more, and Timmy was really the brain behind all of these..

Maclean for me. We have the talent to be a playoff team, but his inexplicable coaching decisions IMO are the reason we are where we are right now; giving the most minutes to 14-15-25 probably being the most obvious one.

The talent is not performing though. Spezza and karlsson does not show up every night. Greening is ****. Condra is ****. Neil is ****. Phillips is ****. Cowen is ****. Ryan has been **** lately. Weircioch is ****.

Sorry, but the players take the blame more then the coach imo.

I unno what SensChirp is saying, that guy loved the Phillips deal, clueless as they come.

Anyway, have no fear folks, RKL is here:

Now, I think we've seen this repeat throughout history and I believe we are seeing it again.

Bryan Murray is a rebuilding GM but he can not make that extra push to get the pieces or make the bold decisions necessary to get this team to the extra level.

I want to say it's all Melynk's fault but it's not.

I love Bryan Murray so it was really hard to say this but we need a Burke type GM to come in and shore up the missing pieces, steal some big trades straight up and get us competing.

Maybe I'm overreacting, maybe Murray forced by Melnyk to not make any moves but THAT ****ING DEAL TO PHILLIPS MAN. I've had enough. We lost to Edmonton and Calgary. Disgusting.

Btw, Lol @ MacLean trying to play hardball.

Methot says he shouldnt have been scratched then MacLean gives him a lesson by scratching him next game.

Ryan says he doesn't like changing shifts then MacLean changes him on 4 different lines today.

Lol? Are we in pre-season or are we trying to ****Ing WIN THE ****ING HOCKEY ****ING GAME TO MAKE THE ****ING PLAYOFFS.

Anyway, check out my rant on the other threads, I promise you won't be disappointed.

People should stop talking about last year and why we made it. Hot goaltending is what got us to the dance last year and if we had an ounce of hot goaltending we'd be in a playoff spot. However it's unreasonable to expect the numbers our goalies were putting up. Spezza and the C isn't why we're struggling either. Give this team the ability to spend to the cap and they would be in a playoff spot. All you have to do is look at the teams with the high payrolls and you'll see so many of them are in a playoff spot. Look at the teams with the lowest payrolls and you'll see they are out of a playoff spot. We're the only ones who still have a small chance to even make it in. There is a correlation between spending and winning.

Come on...any GM who comes in immediately gets handcuffed by Melynk's budget. no chance to make moves to get over the top.

Secondly, the decision to scratch Methot was by management, not Maclean.

Thirdly, he shifted Ryan around along with everyone else to try and get something resembling offense going. Nothing was clicking tonight.

We are going to regret not trading Bobby Ryan. His value will only go down from now.

Bro.

Reports came out that when Anaheim kept calling on Spezza, Murray said "We don't wanna go that way." Without even checking out what the offer is.

That is absolutely terrible managing. That alongside Phillips signing has made me think my perception of our saviour Bryan Murray is not as holy as we seem it be.

Btw, Ryan was with Hoffman and Zibanejad all of last game and they did nothing. Ryan came on Turris line and they created offense immediately yet again in the third till the end of the game.

Then, to start tonights game, GUESSSSSS WHEREE RYANNNNNN ISSSSSSS!

Back on the line he struggled. He gets put back on Turris line guess what happens same shift? Ryan almost scores.

Disgusting coaching lately. Then he puts Greening with MacArthur and Turris in the third even though Greening was one of our worst players today.

Such a joke.

Karlsson is the only reason to go to a game right now and I wouldn't be surprised if he asks for a trade sooner rather than later.

If Karlsson asks to be traded, I can't say what I will do cause I might get banned or reported.

The only reason I tune in anymore is cause of the most exciting player in the league:

Karlsson.

We were in phenomenal position this deadline to acquire a top 3 defender that'll help this team for next 3-5 years in Ehrhoff.

Murray ****ed up.

We better get him in the off-season.
