If I'm Travis Green right now I'm still kicking the snot out of that dressing room !

 

They didn't just let that game get away from them they just stood there and watched it walk away , ridiculous effort level in the third period.

-Coach Green after the loss.  ::D

Every team they play against is heavy.

Your pic is photo evidence that the play was onside. The refs were right, you are wrong.

The middle guys skate is off the ice. Get some glasses or get a new phone that has the ability to analyze an image.

They were missing the best player of this era.

 

 

We're just soft and awful defensively in our forward group.

 

All those forwards who apply that grit and defensively play are out with injury.

 

Like we can't close out games, our PK went to $&!#, we aren't as physical or strong on pucks since Sutter, Beagle, Motte, Ferland, Roussel went out.

 

We haven't been winning much since they've been out.

 

Not excusing the coaching, they can be better but you can't expect to win much with those guys out regardless.

Your first point is moot. Markstrom was sick. 

I did question last game why they played Demko after Markstrom won the last two.

Well to be fair, Torts was a Linden firing so JB's hand are clean on that one.

 

Willie can he argued as more of a Linden hiring so JB can wiggle himself out of that.

 

So Green can be said to be JB's first coach. 

Textbook example of...if at first you don't succeed, please, please try again! :sadno:

I'm sure green will same this same ole crap like he always does...

If anyone’s to Blame it’s the Petey Brock line with crappy defence. I think they where out there on all the 3rd period Penguin goals.

 

anywho just hope they learn from this.
 

on to the next game

Why would Willie be a Linden hire?  Benning was hired first (as a GM should be).  Benning stuck with Willie for three seasons.  He's his.

Hence "can be argued" and "wiggled out".

Horrendous coaching but it was offside.

 

https://ibb.co/PtNDt1K

 

That's the only decision by Green he made all night that was good. 

 

For those of you who can't figure it out, Malkin is onside, it's the guy in the middle away from Malkin. His back skate is an inch above the ice. 

The picture proves it onside not offside

 

what are you taking about? The pick is in the zone, who cares what the other player in doing?

So where are the Green supporters now?

 
- for some unknown reason he decides Demko is his number 1 goalie after Marky wins 2 in a row 

 

-he does not pull Demko after it was clear he was shaky (JG and Malkin goals were bad) and the team was collapsing. Instead he waits until the game was already tied 

 

- he challenges the offside then shakes his head like he knows he has no hope. Great poker player move. basically tells Toronto he knows it’s a good goal...and if he knew that he takes a 2 minute penalty 

 

Travis Green is not a good coach 

 

He demonstrated it tonight 

 

 

 

 

Markstrom was not feeling well today.  That answers the first two of your questions.  

You think that Toronto has a guy sitting there and watching for any tells on the coaches' face?  Come on man, you can blame him for not calling a timeout but not for that other stuff.

and how about sending a message to players? Boeser shouldn't have seen ice in the last 5 mins of the game with his effort tonight.

 

Hughes puts it in the middle and Brock casually swings at it. take him off the top line!

Trade Boeser in a hockey deal, one-for-one. 

 

Kyler Connor, Travis Konecny, Pierre Luc-Dubois, Matthew Tkachuk (oh what could've been).

 

In comparison, these players are substantially better in all areas of the game save for Boeser's shot, which hasn't been that effective for a while now if we're being honest. 

 

I like Boeser but we have to realize rookie season Boeser is likely never coming back and changes need to be made.

We have a good young team, and there will be nights like this.  But if this was basketball or football, Green would be given a pink slip.

I don't think even Clarence Darrow could argue that one successfully.  Maybe Perry Mason if he was facing Hamilton Burger.:P
