6-1 is generous. I expect a bloodbath which ends in John Tavares calling us a Mickey Mouse organization.

Does anyone know what the injuries are to Hall and MoJo and how long they'll be out?

I know some people wont like this but I am missing John Moore. A defenseman who can skate the puck out of our end would be nice right now.

And looking at Moore's numbers and underlying numbers in Boston he would not help a bit.

I watched from behind the goal, as Jeff Skinner made 0 effort to completely undress Ben Lovejoy. Please for the love of god, get that man off the roster. ANY other d-man on the ice would have at least tried to turn around and stop him. Lovejoy was still looking forward by the time the goal was scored.

it's officially #Lose4Hughes season boys and girls.

Yeah fair enough but I assume that lovejoys numbers arent too pretty either. At least Moore could wheel.

John Moore being good at skating and being bad defensively says a lot more than Lovejoy being bad at skating and being bad defensively.

Sorry Lovejoy is playing well.He is playing his game . He is not a puck mover. or skater he is a Defensive defenseman. PLays his position.. Now Butcher is supposed to be a puck mver and speed generator. He looks slow as ever and takes no body. often taken off the puck..looks looks like college player.

Severson -got better -less mistakes but still some big ones.
Vats -never the same this year after getting hurt.
Butcher terrible ..how many PP points ??? 5 ??
Mueller benched
Santini -doing well ,plays his game
Lovejoy slow but plays his game also.
Greene -Big mistakes and slow. but steady.
yako-Looks good just needs to learn.....

Hey we are loosing play MUeller , Yako,and santini.

Sophomore slump for Butch... Many, many go through that. We know his skill. It'll come out.

You keep making posts about how Lovejoy is good and Butcher is bad.

Lovejoy has a 48.8 CF% while Butcher has 54.2 CF%, which is a huge difference. And yeah, Lovejoy is getting 56.1% defensive zone starts to Butcher's 40.7% but that is exactly what you'd expect from these players. Butcher is averaging two more minutes of ice time per game too.

I don't buy this narrative that Lovejoy is a good player and less so when compared to other better players on the team.

Not enough assets on this team, and where are we going to get them. Free agency, after the good ones sign with true competitors, where do we waste money. Nope. Draft and trade are our options. Shero has not done great drafting, good not great. Good to get some later round players, not so good on some first/second round whiffs. Trade, well we have to use that salary cap somehow. What contenders would package a bad contract and some young talent? Not many, perhaps Edmonton. It just doesn't bode well in the next couple of years, and how old will Hall be then? Outside of possibly an uninjured Johansson can you tradetanyone that will bring some value but does not upset the rebuild? Last year looks like a bad dream now, except I enjoyed our playoff win.

I think on boarding that you only get a major if there is an injury to the head or neck area, which might be a reason why Seney only gets 2 minutes there. Which seems sorta wrong because he definitely injured that guy.

KK gives up way too easily. Seems like he doesnt even try.

He has no lateral movement whatsoever. He can only square himself to the first shot and whatever happens happens. Which is a big problem because he gives up a lot of rebounds too. He's just not a starting goalie and really should be getting <20 games a year on any given team.
