    Starting to dislike Cameron. Smith with Turris and Ryan is ridiculous. Hoffman not on PP 1 is ridiculous. Chiasson getting more than 6 or 7 minutes is stupid.

    I was a fan, but that's quickly fading.

    Hoffman has been garbage. I really hope we don't commit to him longterm

    If I was Cameron chiasson would have a seat and I'd try prince then Puempel there until I found what I wanted. What ridiculousness this Smith thing is and even more ridiculous this chiasson failure is. Diddle!

    I disagree. He is what he is. He's not the guy that will be constantly on fire but he looks like a guy that can put up 30 consistently. Just probably hot and cold spells. I think this year he proved he can create offence on his own with his speed.

    I agree. Time to bring up puempel. Chiasson isn't much of a point producer. At this point you Put him on the fourth line and hope he can produce once in a while

    There no way Hoffman will put up 30 consistently. He is the definition of inconsistent. Does not show enough drive and tries to dangle through everybody. I really hate the way he plays the game

    Ugh...I'm disgusted with Cameron and chiasson and Smith - even though Smith and chiasson don't deserve it. It's certainly not chiassons fault he can't score.

    PP is killing the team right now.
    Also, I think the team is trying to cut on the shots against so playing less risky which leads to less offensive opportunities.

    They had tons of chances, just couldn't hit the net of Crawford made great saves. PDO regression, clear as day.

    Whose is it then? Guy is making a lot of money and doing absolutely nothing. If we hadn't traded Spezza for him he would have been waived a month or two ago.

    He should be on the fourth line at best, he can't help it if Cameron continues to use him as a 3rd liner with PP time. Ludicrous at this point...I dint even think he has a 5 on 5 goal all year lol

    How is chiasson making a lot of money? He's actually looked good ad a third liner over the last tow months imo. Using his size effectively

    You could literally put any forward prospect in chiassons place and you wouldn't miss a beat. No offence chiasson he'll be remembered as. Useless.

    Yeah, this can't really be pinned on Cameron. There's way too much panic going on in here. The team's in slump, it happens. Look at what Montreal's been going through.

    I don't think Karlsson should keep playing 30+, but if anyone can handle it, he can.

    Effort is there, barely. Third liners are expected to contribute offensively. He's a staple on our PK and our PK is really, really bad. A guy like this, making more than league minimum, is making a lot of money for nothing. When things aren't going well offensively you are expected to contribute in other ways. For a big guy who plays a regular shift on the PK his shot blocks and hits are very low. He needs to crash the net, take extra whacks, do SOMETHING.

    The coach has to be better, just like the players. He doesn't and shouldn't get a free pass. There is no excuse in playing Smith (zero EV points in 15 games) on the top line. Using Boro as a forward was what, exactly? A smart coaching move or a sign of desperation? Or a feeble attempt to humiliate a player? I think Cameron lucked into some injuries (Smith, Neil, Phillips) and a hot goaltender last year and everyone thought it was his coaching. He's making the same boneheaded mistakes MacLean started making.

    I'm beginning to think this could be Murray insisting on certain players being played.

    Or something in the water at the CTC.
