lol nice. Is there a meme generater for that? how about:

Down by 1 and pulling the goalie





Send Rome out




Mason Raymond Struggling?




Bench Samuelson




Some classics:


Trevor Linden?



You are sitting this one out. Cowan has replaced you.




Sedin's struggling?




Put Taylor Pyatt with them



Byron Ritchie on the point for the PP?


Great idea. Lets keep him there for the whole season.

I get blasted every time I say it, because we're winning, but coaching is our weakness. I don't like Vignault, but although it's ultimately his call, Bowness has a say in the defense lines as well, and Newell Brown has a say on the power play I believe as well. Obviously I can't say their totally ****ing the bed, 1st in the league, 2nd in pp, etc etc etc, but there are some decisions the make that really make question how much of a positive impact they're making vs. throwing Rome out on the powerplay.

why doesn't mr. mike gillis have a chat with the coaching staff mainly Coach a.v/bowness asking "WHY the **** is rome playing over ballard? and once kb3 returns from injury ballard would still get the short end of the stick.

Because Gillis let's the people he hired do their jobs without interfering.

It's better that way to be honest.

I smirked at the third one, but I don't mind them struggling on the PP. I might be the only one, but if they manage to get it done on ES (which they haven't really been) it'll be a more similar situation in the playoffs with the reduced whistles.

Could argue that the past teams were too reliant on the PP and when they weren't given the opportunities in the regular season, they found it harder to score. Not to mention the tighter checking but that's a different problem
