With all the AHL kids we have, and Boone and Nick and PLD’s inability to score - we’re in a tough spot right now. Losing Seth is a really really big deal but we can’t use that as an excuse and we need to find a way to rally!!
Agree. It is absolutely no disrespect to the guys we are putting on the ice, but we are starting to see how important Seth, Cam and Josh are to this franchise. This is still a [mostly] a fun team to watch, but a tight team system and intensity will take the CBJ only so far.
That one stings, not getting at least a point against a mediocre opponent on home ice. Having said that, another post hit by Boone...the feeling about the Jackets' postseason chances would be quite different today if both of those shots were an inch or so different.
Given the lack of scoring talent we can put on the ice right now, the margin of error for this team is just so small.
