This team sucks; big trade or coaching change is brewing.

Lou's gone anyway if this team doesn't make the playoffs again, one way or the other. There's no way he could have seen Kovy would become this much of a disaster.

Kovy is not the problem. The fact that our defensemen can't break out of a wet paper bag is the problem.

This team does suck, but don't expect anything in the way of trade or coaching change.

Yeah I understand being frustrated over Kovy but the scapegoating for the real issues by some is ridiculous and shows you either don't watch games or you don't know much about what you're seeing.. Our D is a major issue as well as 2 top centers being out and some bad breaks..

Learn from last season and don't overreact.. This team is underperforming now but things always even out in hockey during an 82 game season.. You have to look at the big picture and realize that cold streaks happen to every team every season

fvcking Kovy man. His mistakes are starting to happen every game and its starting to cost us every time. I dont know what the hell is going on over there.


For once I dont see it being a coaching problem....I see it being a team problem. Its completely disappointing. I thought last year how much worse could it get? Its only up hill from here. Negative.


We need a complete overhaul. I dont even know where to begin.

Just a mention, the top two scorers on the team, and two of the top 5 in the league, are just not producing right now. THIS is the biggest issue. Goaletending can only do so much. :whistling:

Yeah, but that was last season and us going on a long streak to climb the standings again is a million to one shot. Lightning won't strike twice.

Kovalchuk was better tonight but as i said.... LW he will be much better!

Stop blaming him... Our defensive really suck (except Larsson )

Larsson makes couple of mistake but he is young and he make less mistake then veteran like Salvador and Greene

Tedenby, Clarkson, Zubs, Elias, Syks, Henrique. The rest of them can go fly a kite.

Things are starting to get a little crazy in here. It sounds like some people who could use a win or 5. I'm hearing "trade kovy for nothing" this, and "there's no hope left for this team" that. I thought we played pretty well tonight, but didn't get good breaks and didn't finish on two or three great chances that could have flipped this result. This season as whole has not looked particularly good, but we have looked good for parts (must have to be at .500 now with the crappy losses lately). Why bail now?


Yeah, but that was last season and us going on a long streak to climb the standings again is a million to one shot. Lightning won't strike twice.

A team that played that badly doing a 180 and winning all those games really was lightning striking. This team just needs a good winning streak (with decent play otherwise) to make the playoffs. Can yah skip the theatrics about this team facing an insurmountable task at this point?

With the Pens, PHI, NYR, TOR, FLA, BOS all playing exceptionally well the odds on making the playoffs will become insurmountable quicker than you think.

Deboer on Kovalchuk:

“I thought he was very good,” DeBoer said of Kovalchuk. “You guys the see the mistake that ends up in the net, but him and Zach were the best players on either team tonight.”

NO!

DeBoer's acting like a weenie basically because he has to in this case. Coaches just don't win spats with star players, especially coaches with no track record. And there was more than one mistake, both ones that wound up in the net and one in particular that didn't (at the end of the second period) :P

It would be nice if DeBoer actually got him off the point and RW...I didn't realize it said in Kovy's contract he had to do both.

I think they're a tweener team as the playoffs go (7-10, let's say)... but the problem they could get themselves into is, being so mediocre it forces them to be a 4th place in the division playoff team, which requires a bad division, and also dooms you to a pretty crummy seed.

Again! "Things are just going to keep getting worse and worse for us forever and ever!" So it's over? Also, 8 teams make the playoffs. I'm guessing there are two other teams playing exceptionally well that you left out, no?

Yeah. WSH, BUF, TAMPA. If we manage to finish 9th this season it will be a miracle.

It's obvious that Marty is washed up. I think he needs to take a powder for a bit. Plus, what is the deal with PDB starting him after he got his a$$ handed to him in COL? This isn't the same Marty who would lose one game and come back big time the next day.
