Trotz said at 20 games he would re-assess and see where they are at.. Let's hope he makes a few moves.

I agree toews should be up at this point for multiple reasons.

once isles work out this score early then fall asleep kink they will be fine.

This game was exactly like the game vs Montreal and the games in florida. Look good early in game and Score. than fall asleep for 2nd and lose the game.

what happend in 3rd didnt matter at that point. Greiss did have a bad game as he 2nd and 3rd goals were soft.

its just a game. Regroup and best rangers and devils and those are bigger points in standing anyway.

Dal Colle did look like his skating improved but he not going to show case anything with Gionta as his center or Clutterbuck. Not sure why Trotz didnt insert him on one of top two lines when we were down 5-2. did he really think we were going to come back and tie it.

2 points is 2 points regardless. I get if you win and beat a divisional team they dont get points but its the same if isles beat dallas and rangers lose in Montreal. Still 2 points and zero

Congrats to Sbisa on getting to 500 NHL games... hopefully now that he achieved that wonderful Milestone we can get him off my effing team. Bring up Toews already.. uncle.

Gionta spent the 3rd period on the bench and I would love to not see him on this team ever again too.... Leo cost us a couple of goals with awful give aways in our own end and the fact that he skates like he has a piano on his back.

This team would be a lot better if they played a few of the kids .. check that they are not kids any more... Players in B-port.

Barry is a great coach but he had a Cappy moment putting MDC on the 4th line. It's more than time to have Toews on this team. I understand if Bellows needs more time but Toews should be more than ready.

Casey is a big loss for this team. He really is a very underrated player for Isles. He plays great 2 way game, kills penalties and actually wins a face-off once in a while. They can't go back with the same lines on Wednesday or our recent success against the Rags is going to come to a screaching halt.

The give aways in the defensive zone have to stop.

I think the expectations have become higher for this team since they won a few games. I would temper those expectations. When you see Cal Clutterbuck on the first PP unit it kind of tells you what kind of make up this team has. I think at this point you bench Leddy he has been that bad.

Casey is a good player I think we all acknowledge that it’s his contract that nobody likes.

I agree Cpt. This team just does not have the current roster to do a lot of damage. Barry can only do so much. Have to think Leddy will be moved at some point.

I think Barry is trying to make chicken salad out of chicken shit. There's not much more he can do besides tweak the lines a little. Until there are moves made at least.

Isnt that the same problen the last two coaches had? Until theres more talent systems can only go so far. Good news is del colle and toews are playing well jhs as well. Wilds dobson and wahlstrom are close (2years) so pretty soon we wont see 15 on the 2nd pp unit. This team can be competitive until then and lou may make a move using some of these prospects as well. Yesterday they sucked but all teams have those games so lets see how they respond vs rangers

I disagree with this type of thought process. This team has plenty of talent. They were number 2 in the league in scoring last year and are scoring plenty this year at this point. They need to play better defensively.. period. If they are going to fall back to the idiocy from last year we have a coach who will sit people down until they get the idea. The hardest thing to do in the NHL is score goals. When you have teams that can't score it's maddening and there is nothing you can do about it. We had plenty of those teams in the late 90's, and early 2000's... When it's lack of discipline and structure in zones it can be fixed.

I know most of you think they are going to stink this year and are pleasantly surprised. I am not surprised and actually get really angry when guys fall back into stupid sht from last few years. This team has enough talent to make the playoffs. The coach needs to play some of the talent though too.. and not plug in Turds for "veteran leadership". The whole league is being dominated by 20 year olds. Watching guys like Petterson, Rantanend, Marner, etc.. scoring a ton of points is infuriating when our Mgmt. seems to think we are better off leaving our guys in AHL. Bring them up.. let them fly around the ice.

'No' to Petry and a gigantic '(frank) no' to Alzner. Doubt they move Reilly, Juulsen, or Mete.
