Hey, some fire from the team. A bit late though. It comes from an unexpected but expected source in the Captain E Staal.

Garcon is playing crazy good right now, making saves on some really nice scoring chances.

Staal, Skinner and Semin have looked good here late in 3rd. Might see another line change for the next game.

I was gonna say panic, but I just checked the standings and Carolina, Washington, Philadelphia, and New York are all 2-0. I think it will take five games to finally get in sync, but when we do; we'll be straight.

They should've just canceled the whole season. I knew it was going to be a train wreck. The team is just too weak. JR didn't do enough in the offseason.

We actually did quite a bit but when solidify any needs.

Neutral

We made a lateral move trading Brandon Sutter for Jordan Staal.

Bad

We let go a good defender and a physical presence in Bryan Allen replaced hi with Joe Corvo an offensive minded defense-men.

Good

We unloaded a useless piece of crap in Anthony Stewart for a new physical presence in Kevin Westgarth

We gained a new scoring threat in Alexander Semin.

All in all we didn't do enough to help this team on defense, but did more than enough to help this team on offense.

With so many additions and subtractions, this team needed training camp as much if not more than any team in the NHL. They're basically learning on the fly, as opposed to a team like the Lightning which has their core intact.

Not using it as an excuse, but at some point it has to start clicking for these guys. The question is how long will it take?

Still say we made a huge mistake in letting Bryan Allen walk.

ugh disappointing, hope thing improve quickly. I haven't been upset by the offense (besides the mishandles on passes) the defense and ward are killing me though

No big deal guys. They are only divisional games and we are in a cupcake division (sarcasm), they dont matter at all.....it is prefectly fine to get blown out by our divisional opponents.....after all we missed the playoffs last year by about 5 wins.....so why do two divisonal games in a shortened season matter........ :startle:
