In Topic: Trade:Kesler to Anaheim

27 June 2014 - 02:52 PM

This is why I think that the past couple of years have been abysmal by Lou in term of fighting and getting pieces to strengthen the team (except for the Shneider trade). Every year good players like Kesler get traded and every time we are amazed at how much the price the receiving team paid was low. Every year we sit behind our computers and each trade proposal or trade ideas thread gets the same treatment....''we don't have anyone to trade for this or that guy''.
 

We have the pieces to go and steal players like Kesler and others, but IMO Lou is just not as good as he used to be. If Kesler goes for this, then why would the players proposed in some of the threads on the forum dont go for similar pieces and even less considering most of the time we are talking about less talented players than Kessler. 

 

I know some people will say he was asking for a trade and probably had his preferences in terms of the teams he would accept to be traded to, but come on...were simply never going to win when we sit back every summer watching the show and finally end up adding a couple of Pilkarainens and a Trent Hunter to the team.

The problem as I see it.

 

50% The management (Lou) This team roster is sh!tty and our best area (defense IMO) is average too what you can see on good teams in this league. The contracts given to some players are dumb and have been pretty obviously so from the moment they were signed. You can add to this the acceptance of average results or mediocrity as Brodeur would say. While this roster is no gold mine, there seem to be no real moves in the right direction (apart from Schneider) being made or at least tried. We have seen in the last couple of seasons teams with ridiculous rosters come up with deals that significantly improved their rosters, but we seem to be always happy to say '' no we don't have the pieces to trade for this or that guy''. Alex Hemsky was acquired for a 3rd and 5th round pick and while he may not be a savior for the Senator, I think he is much better than 50% of the garbage we are dressing every night on our top 2 lines. 

 

30% or maybe less The coaching. While he have been good for us in the Stanley cup run. He is stubborn and is willing to repeat the same mistakes over and over again thinking that something is going to magically change. Gelina is 3rd in terms of points among rookie Defense-men, with 15 games less than the 2 guys ahead of him. Why do you have to put him in and out of the lineup so many times ? Its either you play the guy or put him back in the AHL. Apart from stupid decisions like this one and playing Brodeur so much I can't really say anything more than that since the guy has been given sh!t to work with. 

 

20% The players themselves who are also accepting this sh!t and seem to disappear every fvcking night. How many times did we blow a fvcking lead this season ? Do you need fvcking coaching to keep a lead ? Total lack of effort and personality by most of the roster. Not a single time team stood up and managed to win a shootout. A single shootout ! Too much !!! What kind of locker room is  this sh!t ?
