In Topic: Save us Jacques Lemaire

Lemaire's not coming back, Lou already used up his buddy pass.

I just find it ironic that people act like no coach should ever be fired for a bad roster when coaches get fired every year with bad rosters.  If you want to say you don't like the alternatives that's one thing but people bend over backwards defending Pete more than Rex Ryan even.  And Rex had two good playoff runs.

Because as bad as this game was, deep down we all know we're not THAT bad?

It doesn't matter, even if they only finish as bad as they did the last two years (9th and 10th in the draft) this year they'll still have a chance at McDavid.

Same crap, different game.  Cory plays great until he gives up his annual softie.

Hah I'm not sure even I'm that negative...yet, although it could get ugly by the end of November.

 

Still it wouldn't shock me if we stuck to the same script we've seen the last two years, win just enough games against teams we're all impressed they beat, lose enough games against the Winnipeg's of the world to tear our hair out, and get enough shootout loser points to keep ourselves in limbo between firmly in a playoff spot and firmly out of it.

Throw all the numbers out you want (that's what this board is good at after all), he's just not playing as well period.  What bad goals did Cory allow in that time early last year aside from the first-minute debacle in Pittsburgh?  He's allowed a string of bad goals already this year.

 

Plus he was playing those games over a much more elongated stretch, Marty got something like three of the first four starts.
