Green needs to have a chat with Miller as he is costing our team games. Its not just this game but he has been giving pucks away with his terrible decisions and not passing the puck to Boeser and holding on the puck for too long that causes a turnover is really killing our first line. Would love to see Hoglander promoted to1st line and have miller play with Horvat for a bit. Maybe drop miller to the 3rd line and play him as 3C for some games.

Seems like Miller thinks he is better than he is. Making too many moves, trying to be too fancy. He said when he got here he tried to teach Petey and Boeser to dump and chase more. Now he keeps wheeling and dealing but dealing to the other team or just outright getting his pocket picked. Also, we might be the worst passing team in the league. Passes are so off base it's frustrating to watch. They are in skates, behind the intended target or way outta reach. I miss the days we passed too much, wasting ozone time is better than these terrible passes that are leading to chances against.

Big issues right now with everyone not named Boeser or Hoglander. Having the plugs Virtanen and Gaudette on the same roster is just asking to shorten the bench. Thought our D played well apart from the risky play at the line which again leads to the game winner.

 

Defence is tightening up though which is good to see but of course we need a balance and can't find it. Miller and Petey let us down again, if I were Green I would swap Bo and Petey. Bo gets decimated defensively playing top matchups, he's got some skill so I say time to put Petey on the 2nd line with Hoglander, and get Bo on the 1st line and match them head to head with other team's best lines.

Lol if you watched tonight’s game, passing is not the problem. 

Just because they passed a lot doesn't mean it went to anybody in particular, passing is absolutely a huge weakness.

Team toughness is a joke.  We need a player in each line that can and willing to drop the gloves to protect themselves and their teammates. 

 

Welcome to the new NHL , there's no such thing anymore,  ... the old NHL is long gone its all about the euros and them flying past people and laughing while they break speeding laws.

I agree, I thought I was the only one that noticed it. I don't know whats gotten in his head after an 80 pt season, but he's playing like he thinks hes a finesse player now. The numbers are nice with Miller, but fact is his decision making has been absolutely horrible this season. He's basically trying make his best Mason Raymond impersonation, playing the perimeter, passing up open shots. They've been playing hot potato the whole night tonight, the only guy in that line that tried to make a difference tonight was Boeser who was flying tonight. Boeser, The Horvat line was pretty much the only forwards that showed up tonight, and Gauds was ok.

 

The defencemen for the most part played pretty good tonight, top to bottom. Really like where Juolevi's game is going, played really well with Myers these last few games, Schmidt was a stud and Benn was steady

if you trade Horvat,  might as well trade Boeser, Hughes, Petersson ... then we will have the zamboni driver play for us. We need to add to the core not get rid of it when we are just finishing off the rebuild. Losing Tanev, Toffoli and Marky hurt us so we need to add depth

Yeah, switch the centres around or even put Hogs up with Petey and Miller with Horvat. I think Miller seemed to forgotten the fact that he was a 3rd - 4th line scrub, and now he thinks he's prolific scorer

You know, when Karlsson was available for trade from Ottawa, I thought, "mmm maybe Horvat the other way" then our boy got injured for a little bit and we saw what the team looked like without Bo. Geez, the team looked liked a mess and lost practically every game without him. The stat sheet doesnt' remotely show how important Horvat is to this team

Good players, but not a good team.

 

Why didn't they use the short time in this years camp to practice on the ice as much as they could instead doing the usuall intensive testing in the gym? They replaced half of the D, they needed practice, practice, practice. The Coaches thought they could practice on the fly during the season - they were wrong.

 

They simply wasted the short time in the camp.

Don't worry, Horvat will get back to par soon. 

Then the whipping boy will be whoever is having a bad week then...
