Heard this on the radio on the way home tonight. Seemed just so fitting. Courtesy of Slash and Myles Kennedy ... No More Heroes. "Now I know Now I realize, these are hard times We can't face them on our own But I won't lie, I'm not satisfied Who will save tomorrow? When your heroes, turn to the enemy And there's nothing left to hold When your heroes, give only apologies I won't deny it leaves me cold"

Agreed, this first period is only a little microcosm of a pretty pedestrian season. And one that appears to be moving in the wrong direction.

I really don't know why we have Murray in the lineup. He looked bad in Colorado, bad on that play tonight. I suspect you're right, we wouldn't do any worse going with the younger guns here. They'd have some painful moments this year, but the older crew just isn't at the level that's going to get us anywhere anyway.

I really try to be optimistic, but this ain't pretty. I have these visions of a very looong season coming up.

Time to break out the thesaurus. We need some new adjectives to go with brutal.

Somebody want to let our team know there's actually a game on tonight?

I've always truly hoped that Price would succeed, he seemed to have so many natural abilities and was almost certainly mishandled early in his career here. There's an obvious trend here though and sooner or later we may have to face facts. His save percentage has been dropping significantly since 10/11 and his record over the last 20 games or so last year was something like 7-13. He's also started this year with a loss and a .895 SV percentage. Not good.

You're right, the "rivalry" goes way back - to an era where we had 6 teams. Even the Red Sox don't open against the Yankees every year, Man United doesn't open every year against Man City, the Celtics and Lakers don't open each season ... etc. Fla might not be my first choice for the Habs, but there are 20+ teams to choose from. How about Boston for a change, or this year Detroit to welcome them to the conference?

I think Pax the individual gets a pass, it's not his fault (at least not in any way we could know anything about). But the franchise has a major problem with injuries. I don't have stats handy, but we're likely one of the most fragile teams over the past many seasons. Something's gotta give there if we plan on going more than 100 games.

Perhaps a small thermonuclear device might get the message through. It's starting to feel like that ... already.
