It is just a scoring slump , defense is holding up well aside from the Boston game . Defense is the key in the playoffs and that remains intact . Last three games we had one blow out loss and two 1-0 losses . A goal each game would have given us two points min. The Caps lost 5 in a row in Dec , every team has slumps .Good time to have ours and avoid a pasting from the B;s first round .Maybe the team is collectively decided this route on their own and without Martin's blessing . If so you got to hand it to them for team work and great execution . Man when then are in alone one on one they have dazzled in ways to not score . Also with our injuries and overpaid munchkins it is a tribute to Martin that we are even going to make the playoffs . This is really working out well . We will be just coming out of our slump to catch the number one team in the conference taking us lightly and going into their slump . Better also to draft a few positions higher in June . PG loves to tinker and be assured this slump gives him more room to make a few more moves ......

Don;t feel bad for Carey Price . He is paid well and getting all the starts like he felt entitled to as shown last year . He is improving and just a year away from free agency where someone will pay him over 6 mil per year . The smurfs are paid too high to get a buyer for any of them except maybe Plex . They will obviously have to think long and hard over the summer about putting Gomez into Hamilton as they have to sign defencemen . DD brings as much as Gomez and should be much better next year .

So what are these numbers , Bra sizes ? Look on the bright side then as it will be the first time a team with all girl centers made the playoffs in the NHL .
- Comment on About last night … (2011-03-23 07:43:25)
No probs with last night game . No one got injured and we were in it until last minute against a hot hungry team that checked us very close . I don't care what Enquivest stats were ,he looks good out there and just needs time to develop in pro hockey as Eller did . Why blame the fourth line when you lose one nothing ,i just don't get it .Seems like both teams played well but the other guys lucked out on a deflected shot but we didn't . BTW Moan is playing well and a complete game . He came closer then any other Cdn to scoring when he was in close couple of times ....

We got good depth ,lots of speed ,youth,and good experience,good defensively ,good coaching and a good system ...Given how the veterans did last spring and the stepping up of our youth i think our team will be very unpredictable in the playoffs . We could go out early or gell as we get players back and go all the way ......

Sabres used the same stick checking ,stick on the puck when loose all the time as the Habs uses . It keeps the better teams off their game by using our speed to rush jst to touch loose pucks first ....Sabres used it last night ,turned the tables on us effectively .We are a checking counter attack team but when another team uses same style against us they usually win.....

Enquivest seems solid ,responsable ,good size hope we keep him and add Shultz next year .....We are doing fine considering all the missing pieces .....If we had Plecanics last night we would have scored at least one goal .....

Although handcuffed by some large burdensome contracts ,Gauthier has made some pretty good moves . I sort of like the idea of burying Gomez next year.

Cook seems like Biker gang material.
