  1. I'd love to keep Silfverberg. Very solid two-way player. He can be crazy good in The Playoffs (should we ever make it again). If he has to go I hope it's in a package to bring in a significant piece.
  2. If not for Gibson it's probably a 15 game losing streak. I wonder if that would have made a difference in BM's mind.
  3. Ruin may be a strong word but as some have pointed out already quite a few players have taken (a) step(s) back. Larsson is still up in the air. Not saying RC is the only reason for some players' regression but almost the entire team is underperforming. What's the first common factor you look to? The coach has to have something to do with it.
  4. Bollocks. More young players for RC to ruin.
  5. As you may or may not have seen, I started this topic back in October during the previous losing streak. I also put a question mark behind the title. Back then I asked myself and everybody on this board could there be trouble on the horizon for RC now that we've lost quite a few games. Normally when something like that happens a coach's position is up for discussion. However that does not seem to be the case in Anaheim where it's okay to fail your job 12 times in a row. No in Anaheim the next logical step is to keep the coach and trade a fan favorite who gives it his all every damn shift to save a bit of money. Not to mention the team wants to get faster. Of course the best way to do so is by trading one of your fastest players. It's a shame this topic has gotten to 22 pages.
  6. I don't think BM had anything in mind. How can you trade (after an 11 game losing streak) your hardest working player and sell that in a lockerroom? And if the money was the problem, who gave him that contract in the 1st place? No this is a boneheaded move of a desperate GM.
  7. I've always been a BM supporter but that's getting harder by the day. That ridiculous statement about the coach after losing 11 straight and then trading away the one guy who never takes a shift of. That's tough to swallow.
  8. It'll take me a while to get over this. Hating this. Thanks for everything Cogs! Sorry you got crapped on by this organisation.
  9. Oh don't get me wrong. I honestly believe this team can be a lottery team. But the reason I say that is because I can't imagine the league doing this team a favor. I don't blame every loss on the refs but I think it's safe to say we get the short end of the stick quite often. Then there was the Cogliano suspension. What a bloody joke that was. How about giordano going after Fowler's knee with no suspension. I'm not shouting conspiracy but I can't help but thinking they'll rig the lottery if needed.
  10. Is it 9 losses now? At some point even BM has to cave. Even if you can't salvage this season the team can use the remainder of the season to adjust to a new system. Poor Gibson. This team forgot how to score. The PP is abysmal. And no way this team is gonna win the lottery so I can't get excited about that either.
  11. I see this is the 3rd thread in which you ask to trade Kesler. I know it's frustrating he's not his former self but show the man some respect. He has been great for us but his body just says no. He can't help it.
  12. That is both sad and epic at the same time. The stuff from Adam Sandler movies.
  13. Double post
  14. Silfverberg is a very responsible two-way player but don't forget he has been dynamite in The Playoffs for us. I'll sure miss him should he be gone one day (and I fear that day isn't very far away). To stay on topic: "We didn't really create any grind game. If you noticed, once we started to play more of a dump-and-chase, strong forecheck, we started to get some results." - RC I cringed when I read that. Dump-and-chase. Ugh. Then again our boys came away with the win so who am I to judge.
  15. It's crazy. I congratulate the team and RC for getting results but I'm still skeptical. I can't get rid of the feeling that this team can go downhill faster than a fat guy on a scooter.
