How the hell was this game entertaining? The game was frustrating, not entertaining to me. I mean look at the circumstances and whats a stake. We have lost 4-5 games? now and 10 losses in our last 15 games. I don't understand how anybody could find this last stretch of hockey from our club to be entertaining.
Every single game, we have the same deficiencies and certain players as well as questionable moves from coaching staff the last several games that is hindering our chances of success. Our defense has been atrocious, we always play from behind to start off games, and we seem to not be able to close out games the last 10 minutes of the game. We have this very pathetic mindset to our team, where whenever we make mistakes, they are just allowed to go out there and make more of the same mistakes without punishment.
We have injuries, sure, but good teams find ways to win games and we need certain players to step up in crucial times like these and we haven't had that enough. Miller and Virtanen have elevated their games, that's not enough. One player I'm truly waiting on to step up here is Pettersson. He has been very disappointing. These last couple of games made realize Petey may not quite be there yet.
Also, Green, seriously, do a &^@#ing shake up with the roster or something, we've been trying the same thing for the last 15 or so games and it obviously hasn't been working. Baumer, introduce some new defensive structures for our defense, $&!#s not been working for the last couple of months.
If we lose our next game, there has to be major changes to our coaching staff. I don't care what time of the year it is, we have not made the playoffs in 4 seasons, we are hungry for some playoff action, not just for the fans, but the players themselves. We need this roster to experience what it's like to play a full season of wear and tear hockey as well as playing in an intense, high stakes, physical environment of hockey, where you cannot afford to make mistakes and do everything that's necessary to stay alive.
I'm tired of seeing this $&!# everyday.
