How frustrating is it...


When your goalie makes highlight-reel save after highlight-reel save, and your team still manages to lose? Why the hell was Petersen the only one back on the OT goal?

K.Lo, please get Roli some help. Now. As others have mentioned, what's the point in having an expensive netminder without any defence? "Expensive" does not necessarily mean "miracle worker" -- even the best goalies in the league need solid D to check and clear the puck. Otherwise it's just a damn shooting gallery. Roli's baseball move is good, but it's no replacement for a (sigh) "puck moving defenceman."

Even if K.Lo sees this season as a "development" year, it's not very cool of him to rely so heavily on Roli to cover the team's asses when the baby defence turns over the puck. Right in front of the net. Again. Why bother? Why not just string up a shooter-tutor, and let Roli take a vacation in Hawaii? (mmm, shirtless Roli) -- Or better yet, why don't we just ask Conks to come back?

Finland is probably as far from Hawaii as you can get, but still, shirtless Roli:

Petersen isn't a rookie. He just sucks.

My mistake, Bob -- I've corrected that. However, 91 NHL games under your belt does not a seasoned veteran make.

Bring Conks back!

hahahahaha

Why put three forwards out during overtime, and one of them is Peterson? If you are going for it, put out Hemmer or someone. Idiots.
