    Great regular season coach,and probably one of the better coaches this franchise has had but I don't know if he can get that cup here,he probably will win one.....elsewhere

    Anyone think we traded the wrong Derek too?

They were dominated by a physically superior team and have somehow only become softer since his inaugural season. The farther we get from Torts the less "jam" (as he liked to say) we have. Of course everyone loves an easy boss. But does an easier boss mean better product? Not in my experience.

    It doesn't have to be one or the other either. It doesn't have to be Torts or AV, there is middle ground. I'm just so sick of seeing this team put up spineless efforts like that. They rolled over and died against Pitt last season. They did it again last night. I can't fucking stand it -- and clearly the crowd last night proves that point. It's boring, bland hockey.
    The middle ground is Daryl Sutter. Buy AV off. He's lost this group.

    Since, I believe, they have no shot at a cup this year even if by some miracle they get past montreal they will never get past Pitt or Caps I'm kind of hoping they get beat in 5 against the Habs. That should give the brass an easy excuse to replace AV with Sutter. I always said i'd be happy to see 1 cup before i die. Well I did and now i'm getting greedy!! I want 1 more and Sutter could bring it. It would be the same feeling i had when i heard they hired Keenan. SUTTER!

    Even if the Hawks get bounced in the first round again I still think you have to wait a year for Quenneville. Most recent Stanley Cup in 2014-2015, 3 Stanley Cups in 8 years with the club.

    What it comes down to, essentially, is this: the "core" that we've been talking about and building toward for 5+ years is completely devoid of gamers, with the POSSIBLE exception of McDonagh. When the chips are down and you need a goal, there's nobody you can look to on the bench and say, "that's our man." Even when we get a lead somehow, we lack any killer instinct to put the game away. We hang on desperately playing not to lose, and so we lose.

    They are ALL soft. I had hope for JT Miller, and maybe he's just a product of the lackadaisical take-it-or-leave-it mentality that pervades the locker room, but he too doesn't show up. To me, at least, nobody is safe. They're all for sale. Every last one of them, with the exceptions of Lundqvist, McDonagh and Skjei, and possibly fourth liners like Lindberg and Fast.

    People got upset with me when two years ago I said I would trade Rick Nash for the first 20-20 guy that shows up in the playoffs that became available. "He's our most talented player," "we need him to draw attention from our forwards," "he plays great defense," people said. I defy you to find one person on this board who wouldn't eat some of Nash's salary to trade him straight up for Brandon Dubinsky right now.

    All the talent in the world doesn't mean jack shit when you don't have heart. And this team, with the exception of #30, has zero heart. 99% of the time in the playoffs we're playing not to lose. If we were playing any team other than Montreal, we'd be down 3-0 right now and not one of the games would've been close.

    We're a polished turnover machine. We haven't had a forecheck in over 3 years. Our defense is slow and mistake-prone. Players blow coverage left and right when backchecking. This is the team all of us were afraid we would see before this season started, and we're finally being vindicated in those fears.

    I don't know how else to say it. This is not a good team. In fact, when you factor in the lack of effort, heart and killer instinct, you could argue that this team is barely average. If we were playing the Buffalo Sabres in Round 1 we'd be losing to them too, simply because they would actually give half of a flying fuck in the playoffs, which is more than we can say for our team.

    I don't know when being bad will finally be bad enough to motivate change, but it had better happen sooner than later.

    I can't seem to remember hatred towards Lundqvist after Torts got fired... did that happen?

    Anyway, the team reached the tipping point with Torts... I think he probably would have been canned at some point that season even if no one came out against him.
