You know, the (1-goal) win over Phoenix did NOTHING
for me, in terms of being impressed with this team right now. Tonight's debacle took things a step further ...
A few points from tonight's horrendous effort:
1) Chris Simon has
That was as bush league a move as I've seen in a long, long time. I gave him the benefit of the doubt after the Hollweg incident and, at this point, I'm willing to eat that. Bye bye, Chris. You're as cheap as they come.
2) The "extra" penalty given to the Islanders during the Witt/Crosby shoving match was complete and utter bullsPit! Someone - ANYONE - explain to me why 87 doesn't get EXACTLY what Witt gets there ... I'll buy you a freakin' beer if you can sway me ... Unbelievable ... And, of course, Pittsburgh scores the game winning goal thereafter ...
3) "(Ted Nolan) told us to get our heads out of our (butts) (after the first period)
," said Islander defenseman Brendan Witt. "If we want to be in the playoffs, we can't play like that
IF YOU WANT TO BE IN THE PLAYOFFS?!?!?!?!?!?!?
This is EXACTLY what I was talking about in my <a href=http://my.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?user_id=3521&post_id=3556>last post </a> ... WHY IN THE HELL IS THAT WHAT THIS TEAM IS SHOOTING FOR??????? To be in

If you're not going to put forth the effort to ice a championship
caliber team - if that is not your goal - then, you know what? What's the point? Why is simply "being in the playoffs" satisfactory???
This team has EONS
to go before I am sold again.
I've had enough.
I'll continue to watch every game with my
heart and soul into it ... BUT ... I'm bored, I'm pissed and, quite frankly, I - as a fan - EXPECT MORE!!!
I have to wonder if the players on this team have their heart and soul into the ultimate goal.
Doubt it. The organization certainly doesn't show it.
That's all from me ... I need a time out ...
