1 out of 3.....not bad for you. :P

I'm thinking Burrows, Sedin, Edler, Hamhuis, Hansen, Garrison.....for starters.

This is AV's fault

AV again? I think I should lend you some money. Or book some time off in April, I'll buy you a ticket in Glendale.

Actually, no. Pessimists and optimists have the same amount of shite happening to them, but the optimists are happier in between. And to top it off, optimists tend to live longer. Worrying too much about things you can't fix anyway really wears you down. Thus rose coloured spectacles is a far better strategy than bed wetting! 8-)

I think the problem is our defense, not our forwards.

Our ability to get the puck into the Hawk's zone with speed is non-existent.

And that was a brutal give away in the Hawk zone by Kesler :(

No ones in denial fucktard, we know we are playing bad right now just as we knew we were playing great in December.
The season ain't done yet. You are a lousy troll.

I bet you're one of them Climate Change deniers hiding in his bathroom drinking cosmopolitans :mex:

:rofl:

Seriously? You think it's not our forwards?

Daniel Sedin is absolute shit this year. So was his brother Henrik before he got hurt. They have no speed and completely kill any rush where they get the puck and manage to do the job of the opponent's PK for them.

They are absolutely useless against teams with speed and grit or against a team that won't chase them around the boards.....which almost every team has figured out at this point.

Hansen should be a staple in the bottom 6. He's proven more often than not that he just isn't a top 6 forward. Yet because of injuries and lack of real depth he is getting time on the top line.

David Booth has been a colossal failure here.

Burrows is terrible this year.

Weise goes from looking like he has third line potential to being a complete ECHL regular.

We have two problems on defense. Edlerand Garrison. The former because he's got nothing between his ears, and the latter because right now he is just not doing what he was brought in to do.

The problem is definitely our forwards who can't create anything.

Well, if we had a Oliver Ekman Larsson or a Nick Lidstrom skating the puck up, then none of those forwards you mentioned would need to.

I'm trolling meds. :lol: This team is fucked.

We are about to enter a period of time where we will be paying $7M for 5 assists in 14 games. :roll:

Awesome. :mex:

This Olympic break is needed big time, although I wish Kes and the Twins weren't going - hopefully Torts can refocus the group for the stretch drive. Regardless I think Gillis needs to move a few players including Burrows, Edler, and Hansen and try to bring in some youth. I know there are NTC's here but it's time to ask some players to waive em and screw whatever consequences there may be down the road for that. As far as I'm concerned the day new management is brought in it doesn't really matter that Gillis didn't live up to his end of the NTC bargain.

I watched the CGY vs CHI game last night and despite CGY being a shite team this year, they had way more pace and effort than I have seen from our group. Injecting some more youth like Schreoder would be good for this team, who cares if they go through some growing pains. Can't be worse than this shit we're seeing.
