He's taken us beyond round one every single year of his tenure except for two.


How about beyond round 2 then? Once in 6 years.

How'd that work out last time? He got a bench penalty for standing on the bench and yelling, "that's a penalty!"..

Then why are you complaining so much now that we're not at the top of the league? This is the meaningless part, so you should wait until the playoffs before crying the blues.

I put a line through all the guys who were injured in the playoffs. Btw, it was the year before our entire second line had a career year.



Ottawa has 4 wins in their last 10 games while we have 3 wins in the last 10.

Did you actually expect a deep run last playoffs with Kesler injured, Raymond not producing since the back injury, Booth not producing since the knee injury and Daniel out with a concussion? I wrote last years playoffs off before they even started.

Btw, by your standard Detroit should have fired Bowman after back to back first round exits with the likes of Yzerman, Fedorov, Hull and Lidstrom on the team. Because, you know, it should be easy to have a deep playoff run every year.

Ottawa has their #1 goalie #1 Center and Norris winning D-man out among others, what's our excuse?

and please don't say our injuries are comparable because they aren't even close



Our injuries aren't comparable? Kesler is easily as important to the team as Spezza is to Ottawa...arguably matches Karlsson in terms of importance to this team, particularly if you think of the powerplay. (I would concede Karlsson is more important but not by that wide a margin.) Booth...well, he WOULD be as important to the team as Spezza, if he performed and produced like we hoped he would. For him, even healthy, expectations weren't being met. Bieksa was out for a while too, and he would have been comparable in importance to our team as Anderson or Spezza is to Ottawa.

Remember, the issue is importance to our team, not stats and skill.

So, if Booth were producing as well as was expected/hoped, and Bieksa was out just a bit longer (knock on wood that it doesn't happen), then yes, our injuries would indeed be "comparable".

That said, Ottawa has managed to perform better despite such injuries, and that is a difference that can't be ignored.

MG needs to grow a pair and make a big move. aka. fire AV / make a trade that actually impacts the performance of this team.

I'm sorry did you just say Booth and Kesler are the same as Spezza and Kesler is just as important as Karlsson? sorry but....no

Milan Michalek is more comparable to those 2

Them losing Spezza is like us losing a Sedin

Spezza > Kesler
Karlsson > any dman on our team. and in fact > alot of our forwards
Anderson = Luongo/Schneider


Ottawa has been hurt way more by their injuries than us, but they're still doing better than we are.
