Um...of course they are going to play everyone, and go for home ice.

Random thoughts:

This team has been playing bad hockey. Really bad. Are they this bad in practice? Do they practice?

Is this team any better off than when Julien was fired last year? (Note: I am not suggesting getting rid of Sutter - he's absolutely the right answer for the long term. I just wish he would put together some lines that make sense.)

Motteu looked like (was/is) a scrub tonight, and Madden needs to learn how to "seal the deal".

Memo to team - look where you are passing!

Can we keep the puck in at the point on the PP?

I haven't seen Ash since the first game of the season.

Doc Emrick likes soup.

The team is quite capable of playing good hockey. The playoffs are a totally different story, and there's no one I'd rather have in net than Brodeur (who was fantastic tonight, again - and he called the team out tonight in his post game interview - good for him). If we can get at least some scoring (hello Elias, Parise, Gionta, Zajac), we should be in okay shape.

Notice the words "if", "at least" and "some" in that last sentence - holy conditionals, Batman. That's saying something.

I would rather play Boston, but maybe what this team needs is an intense series with the Rangers to get things going. I honestly believe we can beat them.

I never said the parallels between this team and that were the same.


Yes, but wasn't that kind of the point of your whole post?

This team is not very good.

I think your assessment of the team is a little harsh, and your assessment of Lou's long-term impact of the organization even harsher. We do not win three Cups without him, and there's no one I'd rather have as GM.

It's true that the fortunes of this team mostly begin and end with Brodeur, but it's likely that the asking price of a Hossa or Campbell player was too much.

I will, however, fault Lou for not moving one of our defensemen.
