I understand where you coming from with this but I just think it's bad timing posting after last night... If anything we looked like the more offensively dynamic team and were much more aggressive and successful on the forecheck.
You can complain about a lack of finish all you want but the jets are supposed to be one of the faster teams in the league and we outplayed them in every way. They got a soft goal is all.
If we put that effort in every night (and avoid games like the kings and flyers games) we will see more wins.
My response had more to do with Sik02gt's comments about the crowds at games than anything that happened specifically last night. Like I said in a previous post, this team has been held to one goal or less in 9 games (out of 24). That's a problem. But, this team can play defense and do a good job keeping pucks out of the net (their GA is bloated by ENGA and phantom SO goals). That keeps them competitive, and provided they continue to do that, the team should at least remain around NHL-.500. The downside is, unless they can cut down on the 1-or-less nights (9 games out of 24 is a lot), it's going to be hard for them to go on the kind of sustained runs you need to start getting to several games over NHL-.500. Like we've all said, hopefully some of the many forwards who aren't scoring, start to.
