Does Carp think he's one?
Bottom line, Montreal didnt play close to their standards. The bad news is we were further from ours. We didnt 'contain' Montreal. That's generalized horse manure speak. Tonight was about which team could play the least sh!ttiest.
The last post was a little more realistic, except that they aren't going to finish 11th unless they really, really suck the rest of the season. The Flyers are off for a LONG time and then are going to get their own death stretch to make up for it.
It's 10 teams for 8 spots (at least until the Flyers start playing again) and I'm not overly impressed with the competition. I thought Carolina had alot more points than they do. Haven't really checked the standings this year.
And they did contain Montreal and they outshot them badly in the 3rd when Montreal should have totally run us into the ground. Your expectations are way too high and you're not accounting for the schedule at all. They're sorta lucky they bounced back because they schedule put them in a bad spot when they blowing points left and right 10 days ago.
Now, 2 weeks from now if they haven't started making some progress, then I'll get a little concerned. But even then, the season's over in a couple of weeks, who cares. It's not like 2010 where they were done in December and then you have 4 months of meaningless games to look forward to.
