This team has been garbage so far. So embarrassing.

It's been an awful start. Hopefully Elliott stops getting hung out to dry by the D, I'm starting to feel bad for him. It's gotta be hard to get confidence when you're facing as many breakaways and odd-man rushes as he does a night. It doesn't help that he's not playing well himself, either.

Backlund and Frolik have really impressed me so far. Loving what I'm seeing from them.

Also, I think Bennett should be shifted back to the wing. Bring up the Janitor, cause why the fuck not, and let him play center.

This was the easy part guys. None of our first five opponents were playoff teams last year.

Take a look at our next 11 opponents:

Blues
Blackhawks
Blues
Sens
Capitals
Blackhawks
Sharks
Kings
Ducks
Stars
Rangers


10 of them made the playoffs last year. 9 of them finished with 100 points or more, and one of the other two is San Jose, and they made it to the SCF.

Given that we've been badly outplayed by bottom feeders thus far, this could be a painful few weeks.

1-14-1 after this stretch, guys.

They might be able to beat the Sens.

I only watched the first period (stupid eastern time zone) and the Flames looked TERRIBLE. There was a shift about five minutes into the game from Bennett's line that actually produced a couple of scoring chances and had good possession, but when Bennett took his penalty, the wheels seemed to come off.

Obviously I didn't see any more of the game, was it a shit-show after the first or did they get their shit together?

They have no drive. They can't hold the puck in the offensive zone. Hell they can't hold onto the puck period. Passing is super sloppy. So many turnovers. They give up the puck a lot. The top line is playing like shit. Gio and Hamilton suck.

Why the fuck the defenseman were playing BEHIND the blueline last night in the first during a powerplay was beyond me. They had a slow start last season but this is a whole new level of suck. I don't even know who to blame. Obviously the players because they're playing like shit but could it be they can't transition to the style of play Gulutzan wants? I wasn't a fan of the hiring when they hired him and this slow start and lack of...everything isn't helping my opinion.

Should've hired Boughner. At least they'd play defense.

They suck, but I'm still ok with giving them 15 games or so to get their shit together.

New system takes time. Also our best players are garbage right now.
