So last game I said I feel like we need to earn 10/14 points to have a shot at remaining in the Wild Card hunt. That means we're now down to 10/12 points for this homestand. So we have to go either 5-2-0 or 4-0-2.

That makes this another MUST Win!

 

But considering Phil's approach to lines appears to be by rolling dice (or maybe flipping a coin?), I'm not sure how well we're going to play against a team ahead of us in the standings.

 

Here's to hoping for a return to some of that November magic!

I’m not adding that garbage Phil had during practice. Anyway. Sabres are still in 9th with Carolina and Philly coming in hot. Minnesota is 7th in the West with a 13-13-0 away record.  Dumba and some guy named Aberg are injured. 

Dubnyk has a .914 SV% and 2.55 GAA. Stalock is at .892 with 3.00 GAA. We all want Ullmark and Phil will likely put the goalie coach in net.

We are only 3 points behind Columbus with the same amount of games played, let's get that wildcard !

Housley said that the decision on who starts in net is results based on wins and losses. Hutton winning in Columbus and Ullmark losing 1-0 in Dallas was the reason that Hutton started versus Chicago.

Someone should tell him performance in the CBJ win was not as good as the performance in the Dallas loss.

Not Ullmark’s fault they couldn’t score. Ullmark has a winning record. Hutton does not. Hutton let in four against Columbus to Ulmark’s one in Dallas. I don’t get Phil’s problem.

To get the win Ullmark would’ve had to get his third shutout. How many does Hutton have and compare who has had more opportunities (games played).

This is a pretty close paraphrase of what I heard.  It's nearly moronic.  (Housley's statement, not your paraphrase.)

Just posted about this in the Housley thread but I am about there with Phil. He just isn't a smart hockey person and doesn't either use or understand the information presented to him. His analyses and conclusions are painfully slow in coming and usually incorrect even if there is an obvious correct answer. At this stage, I am not sure if I want him back next season. I am also concerned that his assistant coaches didn't or couldn't intervene successfully on something like this. Between Phil's love of Scandella and Hutton it is clear he plays and has favorites. I just...

What does that matter?  Would he be smarter for watching CNN or MSNBC?

Awesome.  Let the ideological bullying begin.  This thread will be dynamic and marvelous with it, and we'll all learn to fall in line with mediated sociopolitical thought.

He would only watch CNN after eating a tub of soy. But seriously Phil sucks at coaching.

That’s not part of the NPC talking point. But you are right.
