    Re: The Message That Should Be Sent...

    Bigger message needs to be sent than that.  If this team is a great defending team and wants to play one goal games it better find guys willing to leave it all on the ice.  I am not confident that Savy/Wheeler/Ryder fall into that group. 

    I am gonna try and stop while I am frustrated.  Hate losing like that.

    Savvy and Ryder definitely don't fall into that group. Wheeler does, I think. But what was he thinking in OT???

    [QUOTE]PC should fire Geoff Ward to send a message to the team. Small enough to give the existing core a chance to improve, big enough to make a statement, and it addresses an issue with this team (powerplay). For those who think this would be peanuts (maybe they should do a little more, I agree), keep in mind that, while to you and me Geoff Ward means nothing, this is a guy that these players deal with daily. They're humans and a point will be made.

    No argument from me.Half a season is long enough to figure out a way to at least gain the zone to get set up for the PP.It hasn't been happening.I think Bergeron needs to move to the 1/2 wall rather than the point.He's got too good a wrist shot to be wasted on the point.Add to that,we've got Chara,Seid,Boychuk,and now Kampfer for the points and Savard isn't earning his PP time.I really expected a big game from savard after that last stinker but he was worse than invisible as I noticed him playing bad.

    I have to disagree with you here dc.  Firing Ward alone accomplishes little - it would be like putting a bandaid on a broken wrist.  This team's problems run much deeper than just the PP coach.

    I am starting to feel that PC & CJ have brought this team as far as they can, and this duo will not be able to bring a cup to Boston.  It's time for Neely to start doing his job.

    Hangnail, while I can understand (though disagree) with the CJ criticism, PC has been arguably the best GM in the last 5 years. With an actual core to build around, I am excited to see what he does next.

    Team has talent. Coach's system has worked. PC's deals have been mostly good.

    We need a reliable scoring winger and some heart... the first one is do-able.

    Re: The Message That Should Be Sent...

    True enough dc, but my feeling is that Neely should take over the GM role for the rest of the year, hire his own guy behind the bench, rally the troops and give this team a shot at deep playoff run.  I like their core too, but I feel Neely needs to put his stamp on the team, and he is handcuffed with PC there.

    Huh?

    His cap management has been miserable, his free agent signings questionable, his drafting brutal, his contract extensions mediocre to barf bucket and his trades have netted very little.

    What has he done to put him in the top half?

    You seem to imply that this team went from 25th to consistently in the playoffs with a very bright future without the GM doing anything.

    I'm not sure I agree with the brutal drafting comment.Hamill has been a letdown but guys like Sauve,Spooner,Knight and even Colborne look like players that could easily have been drafted higher than they were(and rightly so).

    So distraught over the bs called a game tonight.

    Cj not my favourite, not even close, just scared what will happen when we jump from the pot.

    We need a coach, a PP and half a dozen more players like March that never quit skating.

    Once again Rec 2:59 PP time, Seid 3:24PP
    Boychuk 0:05PP March 0:00PP
    TT 39 saves Bos 29 shots
    Outshot 18-8 in 3rd and 5-0 in OT
