We're terrible! We have no offense, terrible defense...we suck, we're the worst team in the league.
We have so many guys dressed that would be scratches on avg NHL teams. They woudlnt even be good enough for the 4th line on avg teams.
Koltsov is terrible! Absolutely awful! Whoever thinks he's good is drunk!
When's the last time he had a scoring chance? With that speed, when's the last time he drove wide to the net, when's the last breakaway he had...hell when's the last shot on net he had? His hands are TERRIBLE!! I'm not lying when I say my hands are better, and I only play twice a week now in an NBC league. At least I can stick handle, and make and take a pass... HARD. Sure he's fast, but he uses his speed terribly. He puts himself out of position because he skates way too hard at the worst times. He's a scratch on any other team....people on here that think other teams want him have a serious drinking problem. He'll be a throw in on any trade...not the guy being traded for. 2 points in 30 games or more? No goals? Hell no shots! LOL
Endicott...enough said..slow, terrible hands, slow thinker, can't react, can't win draws, ....just bad. Once again, a scratch on any other team.
Malone...streaky beyond belief! Does this guy realize that sometime you just can't HOLD on to the puck? He never moves it fast, he thinks he can just hold it and play fancy with it....poke check, boom gone...gotta move it faster...but at least he's playing bettter lately.
Jackman...I'm seeing lately why he's been a scratch, he has total defensive responsibility breakdowns! From the red line up, I like him...red line back, YIKES.
Cairns, Cross - Same guy! Both stink and both would be scratches on other teams...yet we insist on playing them. Cairns at least serves a bit of a purpose, but c'mon, they're both bad.
Rita - another guy that would be a scratch on any other team. A couple flashes of brilliance tonight...i'll reserve judgement on him for a while though, giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Surovy has stopped playing the game he played when he was first recalled. He's not banging anymore, he's just not the same player he was.
Bogs needs to keep playing more, he's getting better. That line was actually half decent tonight. I think he could be a 3rd liner on an avg team. Nice to see him getting a chance now.
LeClair - Wow, this guy has just gotten worse every game lately. He'll definately retire after this year. He can't skate, he's constantly falling down, he doesn't shoot, he's an empty sweater lately.
Melichar - I think we should dress a roll of Charmin with a number 2 on it (no pun intended), it would be tougher and stronger than Joseph!
And why do we insist on taking the extra 2 seconds to clear a puck on the PP and then get stripped of it? We've been guilty of that SO much lately. Get the puck and FIRE IT! No, they wait, hold it for a second so that they can get set, and then it gets blocked or stolen. FIRE THE DAMN THING OUT FAST! Watch how awful we are at that, and hence the bad PK because guys are tired!
Did I mention we're the worst team in the league by far? There's very little talent on the ice....well NHL talent that is. For that, I thank you CP!
I mean, who in their right mind would have thought that we'd need a legit NHL centreman besides our 18 year old rookie? The 18 year old rookie should have been MORE than enough for the 3 other lines! I guess he thought Endicott, Pijreta, and Talbot would be better than Perreault. 2 rookies and an unproven useless european would be better than the best faceoff man in the league...I mean, anyone would think that right? Yeah , we sure couldn't use that best faceoff % in the league, or those 20 some odd goals. Did he honestly think Perreault would hurt this team and not offer anything? So he decided to just not offer him a tryout?
Or who really would have thought that we'd need some NHL D? Odelein and Poapst would fill the holes! Any brainiac knows that! And let's make our biggest FA signing someone that we totally didn't need. A defensive liability, offensive D man, when we already have 2. Great thinking there.
Notice I'm not blaiming him for Thibault or Palffy, those were kind of out of his hands. Thibault was an all star the season before and nobody thought he'd be that bad. Palffy was just bad too, way worse than anyone expected.
We need a complete revamp, this is bad! REAL bad! Even Crosby is being brought down. It's sad to watch, it really is.
