The more this season wears on, the more I'm thinking it isn't the third-line center that needs upgrading. This defense is just utterly awful in every respect.

We're all so worried about the defense while our offense can't muster a single God blasted even strength goal a game :evil:

Does anyone have any idea what’s wrong with this team?? Are they just tired? Injuries? I feel baffled as to why we are playing like garbage this season.

I think it's all starting with the defense. There's zero offensive presence from the defensemen at 5v5. Zero. No one jumping in late and finding holes in coverage, no seemless transitions out of the defensive zone. So many blind dumps up the board with no hope of the forwards getting it and going towards the o-zone.

We're in the Mike Johnston syndrome. Losses of 3-2, 2-1. Losing 2-1.

Giving up 2 or 3 goals a game usually is a winning formula.

Biggest problem with the defense is not starting the offensive surge. Letang has lost it and who right now is our number two offensive defenseman?

They just aren't going to call anything else on Van and they know it.

Letang was back and still didn’t do anything to stop thatboass or shot from coming on net.

Nice of Sid and Letang to take the same player and leave their only goal scorer of the night wide open in front.

Feel like Sheahan and Sutter could change uniforms and no one would know.

Feels like the Pens and the Nailers could change uniforms and no one would know.

Okay, so Crosby's got a hurt groin or something, right? He didn't age 5 years over the summer.

How do you call Guentzel here? He was the one interfered with.

I love how Jake gets a penalty then the Canucks do the same thing and the ref just laughs.
