    Team deserves all the criticism until they start winning consistently

    Yea losses against 3 playoff teams doesn't sit well. Need to start winning these games against good teams. Can't just play well in them. Bottom line is they aren't finding ways to win games like they had a habit of doing last year even if they didn't play well. I think it's going to be tough to be confident about this team until we win games vs good teams and look good doing it. They may need to win a few playoff series until getting real excited about their chances but sadly that is a while away and we might not even get that chance.

    the first one was extreme sarcasm because I've made it known on here that it's loser talk if you are saying "puck luck" on the reg. It's Cooper speak and I am tired of that loser tbh.

    Look what I personally believe in is that the team started slow and is now just finding their game. Yeah they didn't win but had some really good periods and seem to be trending up.

    I really believe the team will keep trending up and the worst will be left behind us.

    Maybe this is a good thing. A little adversity to start, instead of walking through like last year.

    Cooper in his presser yesterday said, “The human body is like a battery. If you exercise too much you’ll use up the finite amount of energy you have. We’re just keeping ourselves fully charged til playoffs start.”

    I think he's talking about our playoff game. One more game and we will have found it.

    I'm losing confidence in this team making it into the playoffs. They haven't played bad in these last couple of games but it doesn't matter if you don't have anything to show for it. This game could've been a nice turnaround game if we completed the comeback but we fell short once again.

    Tuesday will be another loss since we're unable to beat the Predators.

    so when a team gives up the puck by throwing it to the opponents side of the ice - its sucking, right? it has nothing to do with the actual plan to do exactly it and use it as advantage.

    This may be the bs reason why the Lightning don't train as much as the other teams? I remember Kunitz surprise when he saw how much lighter the Lightning traning schedule was compare to Pittsburgh's.

    And that’s the reason why Pittsburgh has never won a cup.


    Wait.

    Is it because they burned out their legs before the playoffs started? :sarcasm:

    I still think we make the playoffs, and that we are fine. That is entirely based on what I think they are capable of doing, not what they have shown, so they deserve all the criticism they are getting.

    Injuries are the main back breaker, if they stay healthy, like most talented teams that struggle, they’ll find their groove at some point.

    Check your facts again. Pittsburgh did not win President trophy. Did not win the conference. Did not win the division. Did not repeated the win record. They saved a lot for playoff. Unless of cause you think its very easy to win games in NHL and it requires nothing but beautiful eyes.

    Awful logic, they played 82 games like everyone else but whatever makes you sleep at night recovering from last year's sweep.

    Everyone plays 82 games. There is no requirement to win 82 games or win PT, or win Conference, or win Division. Your attempt to make it a some kind of requirement in order to make playoff or win SC looks silly. But whatever makes you look good in your own eyes.

    Funny thing though that your every message contradicts well known facts. Whose logic is awful here?:sarcasm:

    Yeah great argument, how come Columbus the 8th seed with a first round sweep lose to Boston who were the 2nd best regular season team last year? Boston's legs shouldn't been done after trying so hard in the regular season :laugh:

    Whatever makes you sleep at night.

    Check facts. Boston and Columbus lost in playoff last year. Pittsburgh did win twice recently. Your logic is awful

    You are so worry about my sleep, while you should be worried about posting something that actually make sense, does not contradict well know facts and has at least 1 supporting evidence other than your personal opinion.

    P.s. No surprise you are so annoyed with my opinion. Cause it based on facts :laugh:

    With all the games in hand and how weak the division is, the Bolts will probably be comfortably in a playoff spot sooner than later.

    Still doesn't give me any hope they'll do jack **** in the postseason.

    Your argument is based on your perception of teams saving energy.
    According to you they only do it if they don't finish at top of division, conference, whatever. Which is ridiculous. Not a fact, because you were not in any of those teams to know if they were "saving" it for the playoffs. This Tampa team is spending more energy than last year's. Like it or not.

    Apparently scoring early, coasting and locking up your playoff position by January is exerting more energy than this year, not only that he thinks it's actually the team strategy to do this on purpose - man that sweep hit some fans hard :laugh:

    Your argument is based on the perception that winning a game requires less energy than loosing it. It contradicts all known experience of the entire humankind. While my argument is based on the known fact.
