You can't "blame" the rest of the team for shots that didn't go in. That makes no sense. The point last night was lost due to Cory giving up a terrible goal.

If you want to blame the guys who failed to score and lost another shootout, id be on board with that.
I should note, it's a huge difference between assigning blame where it's due and saying a guy should be run out of town. I think Schneider is great, I'm happy we locked him up long term, but can you really argue he's been on his game thus far?

 

Very valid point. I just do not agree he's the lone reason we lost a point. He's unquestioned part of it, but not the entire problem from last night. If he doesnt make the kick save late in the 2nd, we get zero points.

The Marleau goal did not look screened, even if it was it still went through Cory when he was in perfect position.  Either way that has to be stopped.

 

Yes, he should have had it.

 

However, it was a 3-on-2 and its not unrealistic to think his defender would actually make a play on the shooter and not ole it.

More than half the board wanted to run Marty out on a rail last year.

 

Yes. And even still, some of those and others would write off Brodeur blunders with "well the rest of the team should have picked him up, we cant expect him to do it for them."

He only had an okay game against the Rangers and good games in Tampa/Florida, and one of the games he was up 5-0 before he ever had to face a pressure shot.  He was bad in Philly, horrible in Washington and ruined otherwise good games against the Sharks and last night by letting in goals '83 Chico Resch would have stopped.

 

731 there's a huge difference mentally knowing you're the starter, especially when you're the starter replacing Marty.  It's not all about physical wear.  He isn't playing anywhere close to the Cory of last year, this is fact.

 

Yeah, let's ignore the fact Salvador and Greene both blew their coverage on both power play goals. or the fact Salvador provided the perfect screen for Marleau and his shot block "attempt" was more of an ole than any actual defensive move.

My high school baseball coach used to say to us after a loss, "Losing's easy, winning is tough. You have to want it and fight for it every chance you get."

 

As a poster above said, this team does not have the killer instinct to put away games when they have the chance to do so. Sure, we cruised to wins against Philly and Florida, but in both games the teams stopped fighting back. Fast forward to the Ranger game, we had a chance to put away a good team, but they went into the DeBoer Shell in the 3rd and tried to cling to a lead.

 

I blame the coach and have for years, I still am sticking with 2012 being a fluke until the team proves us wrong. They need to have some damn fight in them and actually go for the throats of good teams instead of hoping to coast to victories.
