Friday's Dump & Chase: Welcome to the End of the Season!

New, comments

Last night's game was a great sample of what we're in for the last 20 games or so…Pekka plays great, we're "tough to play against", don't score many goals, etc. With a 0.6% chance of snagging the 8th playoff spot, I guess they'll force the broadcast team to pump that "lock in your playoff ticket priority" stuff for another week or so, then it's cruise to the draft time. So…what would you like to see out of this team for the rest of the year? Call up the young guys? Move Weber to center? Orchestrated line brawls? All entertaining suggestions will be considered.

Well short of expectations, Poile ready to rethink Predators' offense | nashvillepost.com

Am I losing my mind, or did he SAY THE EXACT SAME THING LAST YEAR? Too many of the same type of player, need to be more dynamic, etc. And forgive me Mr. Poile, but have you ever stopped to consider why the players you brought in can't even equal their very modest career averages in points? Good grief this is aggravating.
