Bad goal-tending, bad defense and a lack of effort. Giroux with 3 absolutely horrible passes in his own end that result in Pen scoring chances. Kimmo with a pathetic game and he even causes a loss of a PP by yapping at the ref after Coburn got boarded. We should have got a 5 min PP there but yapping at the ref was not any help. If I am Homer I would be shopping Kimmo big time. With just a little effort this game could have been won even with the bad goal-tending. Lavy isn't getting through to these guys or they are not listening. NOTHING Homer could do will save this season from being what it is, a rebuilding yr with lots of new faces and lots of rookies. Homer should focus on next yr and beyond. Oh and anyone who thinks Bob is the answer think again.
Not championship material.
Blow the phuking thing up.
If homer was a smart man, he would shop Bobs at the deadline. Get something good. Sell of Kimmo, Carle and Coburn.
Revamp the d like he did the forwards last year. Sell Hartnell to LA. Get Bernier back.
Pitch JVR and Carle for Nash. Walk from Jagr. Sell Briere.
Enough of doing enough to make the playoffs. Establish a game plan, and stick to it.
JVR/Hartnell/ Timo/Coburn/Carle/ Pronger/ Bobs...buy out Breezy in the new CBA penalty-free buy out.
You would have 33 million freed up, - minus whatever prospects you get back. Time to do it right. We have the talent at forward. We also need to strike while the iron is hot with Hartnell. Topline player (right now), low cap hit for what he is doing this year. You should be able to get something decent back. Get what they can for Kimmo. He's been great, but is clearly buckling from the pressure/ wear/ age. I don't see many expecting Carle back. I have lost faith in Bobs. He has been hanging with Breezy too much. Coburn...could get a pretty return for. Youngish, low cap hit for top 4, big. Could revamp this team and make them lethal. Patience is all that would be needed.
