The Rant

I found it interesting that Stevens is planning a sit down with Biron to discuss his Jekyl and Hyde performances of late. Agreed to a point that he has been less than stellar but I think most would agree that he is not the most concerning of our problems.

Mike Knuble- Loyal yes, but also slow, difficult to find line mates for and taking up lots of valuable ice time.
Dany Briere- His play has been alright but he takes the worst penalties and lots of them to date, he needs to be more consistant
Kimmo Timonen- Average to say the least, I think maybe the expectations are matching his salary too high
Scott Hartnell- awful, the tangibles that Stevens is praising him for are being achieved by Eager nightly.......when he is in the lineup.
R.J. Umberger- Needs to play with the same intensity for more than a period per game.

Maybe Stevens should address some of these concerns or maybe the predictable outcomes which lie ahead for this team namely 2 predictable losses in a row to Jersey surprise, surprise Brodeur would be at 600 much faster if we had to play them anymore that 8 times a year. Ottawa will kill us and Carolina will spank us pretty good to- very negative but true. So why is that? Because it is predetermined destiny by this team, they are alright with mediocrocy. There is not one other team in this league that is as predicable in the win loss column than the Flyers whom appear satisfied with the past as a measure for the future. So instead of wondering about Biron wonder about the teams mental approach and desire while playing.

This is so wrong on so many levels.

Mainly that it barely qualifies as 'a rant' let alone 'The Rant.'

'A succession of quibbles' is more like it.

Umberger's name shouldn't be anywheres close to this "rant" IMO...

We're in the toughest division in the league right now and we are sitting in second place while we address some issues...I'm not trying to downplay my fears that we are slipping but every team in the Atlantic has been whacked around at some point early on, everyone has responded...I don't see why we can't do the same.

I wholeheartedly agree with this point!

Agreed, mostly

There are a lot of good points here. We do need more consistency in goal, but we also need better/more consistant play from our top players (Briere - Hasn't played very smart, Knuble - When he's not standing in front of the net, it's usually painful to watch, Hartnell - Just expected more, Carter - He needs to hit the net more with his shots).

Knuble, I love him God help me, just looks completely out of place anymore. He was great ever since we got him but this year, he just looks slow and out of sorts.
