Crosby says the team is "depleted". Not to make excuses, I kind of agree with him.

Shero, Crosby - coming to the aid of the MT bashers.

I agree that MT isn't to blame. I'm not using the depleted excuse either. The team has 2 of the top 3 players in the leauge on their team, not sure how that equates to depleted.

They just haven't been playing consistently well for the past month. It happens...you gotta work...

I'm not blaming MT either, but the team has to play better than it has. We'll see how January treats us now that some players are back.

Stole a win against NJ, had a win stolen from them against Montreal, I think the perfect start for the new year would be us beating Boston two-straight.

Do you think that they could still be a little drained from the short offseason/Europe trip still?
I agree they are depleted but even so they are playing like crap. What happened to the tenacious back-checking and solid defensive play? They are depleted but they are also playing lazy, sloppy, and without fire.
Hopefully with Fleury and Whits back things will get better.

Agreed...and coming with that will be the end of Boston's 8 game winning streak.

Sorry sid but saying the team is "depleted" and the schedule are excuses!!! Excuses are for losers!!
Man up and go to work!

Also, what do you expect shero to say? He's not gonna call the coach out in the press. I think everyone here knows it comes down to what Lemieux thinks, and if he not happy all bets are off.

Shero said the right thing. Crosby though should have took some more blame on himself. That's what the Captain needs to do.

Agreed...

I don't think it would be such a bad thing if this team had more veteran leadership (not taking a shot at Sid) just my opinion.
