This team is missing something on the forward line and MG did nothing in the off season about it.
What does he do but bring in another defender.
I do agree with you about the team coming out flat and no one should be surprised,

-Burrows looked uncharacteristically slow tonight, not sure why or if its just me.
-the Sedins brains were uncharacteristically slow tonight, taking a little too long to make the play
-I know they can't practice with coaches during lockout but the Fucking, Fucking FUCKING Drop passes on the PP are long past their expiration date, especially when used that frequently.
-Weise had about 6 half breakaways and they were all pretty sad.
-I like Garrisons effort level at keeping pucks in the zone, he gets his body in front of clears, he doesn't just half ass wave his stick at it
-2nd line was invisible
-Ducks scoring 2 goals in the first 5 seconds of a PP tells me they just werent checked in mentally. Not sure where the forward was on the Souray goal or how Perry was left all alone in front on his PP goal.
