A third of the game, the other 66% they sucked balls.

I’d say it was 50/50 tonight. But the bad 50 was (frank) ugly.

Well, let's just hope they come ready to play Thurs. Really need to go on tear and get some separation in the standings.

Edit: watching Preds/Blues and preds only have 15 shots for the game 5 mins into the 3rd. So makes me feel better about our lack of shot generation/scoring.

After watching tonight’s game and I’m not sure anyone they traded for would have helped them win. Calgary is a lot better than I thought.

the chick is on twitter she wears the stupid lipstick

Dude when I first saw her popping up on twitter I was like... whatever she's just having fun and enjoying herself. But it's slowly been progressing where it's obvious she's strictly doing it because it's drawing attention to herself more than it is actually rooting for the team. She's using the fact she's a younger decent looking female to create a popularity contest. This video seriously makes us look like a bunch of puss bags. I honestly wish I could apologize to the rest of the NHL on behalf of us normal freaking fans.

Side note: my friend noticed a necklace she was wearing. Does it say "Anders" on it? And if so... is that not like borderline stalkerish? Unless they've been fvckin? Anders Lee's c0ck is blue and orange

Ladd looked like he needs a few more games in bport for conditioning. Shannon Hogan cut the intermission interview short (after one question) because Ladd couldn’t catch his breath. You can’t play Trotz’ style of hockey if you’re not in game shape. I’d rather see MDC play..

Hoping he's playing his way into the press box. Agree on MDC. At least he works hard. Maybe he'll find his groove one of these stints up with Isles.

Bailey continues to be the most maddening player I have ever seen where this team's Jersey. Scores a goal or makes a great pass that results in a goal. You are just about to give him some slack... then he either gives the puck away or just stands like a statue and it ends up in your net.

What does he say to the coaches when they go over this play? 3:36 if it doesn't load correctly. What exactly was he doing? D-man passed it up the boards to where He was supposed take puck and look to clear the zone. He Actually watched it go by to D-man and then again as he passed it back along board to forward.. WTF is that? Just fken stood there.. I hate him.

Ladd still sux by the way. Nice of Ladd and Bailey to allow Barzal to get crushed without any response at all.. perfect linemates.

Still waiting for this grit that Ladd supposedly adds to the line up. I think he avoids contact more than Bailey. It literally looks like he tries to avoid the play while he’s out there. On the second goal he just stood there and watched that shot happen and did nothing to prevent it. If he’s a fixture in this line up from here forward we’re in deep crap.

Trotz/Lou have to get rid of the notion that he has to play because of his contract(whether they have that notion remains to be seen). He may score a goal here or there but he does so much else wrong while he’s out there the negatives far out weigh the positives.

Last night was one game but the offense has struggled pretty much all year. Hard to see things getting a lot better at this point.

This has been a major problem that significantly got worse since the all star break...
It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone Trotz doesn’t have the horses to put up a ton of goals. The problem for Trotz is when a line like barzals for example starts struggling his options to mix it up are what we are seeing now. There’s really nothing to work with unless you view Kuhnackl and Komarov as legitimate top 6 options and if you do I don’t know what to say to you.

This team overall was performing better even when that line was struggling without having borderline nhl players and 4th liners on it. I would have to think he realizes that now and we won’t see a similar line up on Thursday. At least I hope we won’t.

This looks like the team everyone expected them to be which isn't good. Shockingly the pp and the team couldn't score in general. 20 games and a 6 point lead isn't that much. Lose 2 or 3 and they may be on the outside looking in. Will be sad if they miss the playoffs

It's getting to the point where they have to call up Dal Colle or Ho Sang and start sitting guys that make money. Barzal can't be saddled with no-talent trash like Komarov and, to a slightly lesser degree, Ladd. It's a total waste of your most talented offensive player.

I'm sure part of this is the team struggling to play both solid defense and offense. This team obviously needs an upgrade of offensive talent though.

Lou might not care but if the Isles are out in the 1st round like the Leafs were last year after Lou also did not make any deadline deals, Lou will get some criticism.
