On the bright side, maybe a thrashing like this (and could have been a thrashing in Buffalo, 6 posts) make CP see this team will be VERY hard pressed to make the playoffs, and is certainly not a Cup contender.
That Koltsov is not a top-6 player. (at the same time...somewhere in Kazan...Morozov nods )
That we have too few two-way forwards. Teams are getting into our defensive zone with speed, constantly.
Defense need improvement. Try from the inside first, call up Whitney and Welch. But try something.
(btw, am I the only one who thinks Tarnstrom looks better than Gonchar at just about every aspect of the game, except shooting??)
Mario looks kinda outta place there. Let him play LW, try get a valid 2nd line centre here.
