    Yep. Not a fan of Gru’s play of late.

    Good win last night.

    Was going to post something similar the other day, but it had been a while since he had played and the stats didn't support it. By eye test Driedger certainly does look like the best goal tender.

    Gru is starting tonight though. Grrrrr…. Unless Driedger hurt himself last night, this is dumb.

  • Anyone else notice when Yanni Gourde gets in a fight and is hitting and getting hit, he has the biggest $h!t eating grin on his face like he’s really enjoying it. That’s a hockey player.

    I am starting to think the problem is Hakstol has Pete Carroll Syndrome. He finds things that work and then reverts to $h!t play because he wants the team to play in his system.

    Could be. I’m a newbie to the NHL, but those huge contacts they gave to both the goalies isnt looking like a smart investment to me. Maybe it’s fixible, but both guys just seem to be turnstiles at the net.

    I think they need to start the 3rd guy Daccord for 4 or 5 starts in a row and see if he’s the possible solution?

    I’m not saying the defense isnt an issue either, because the have had their issues and they are not helping their goalies at times either but the goalies need to step up at some point.

  • Feelgood hockey story, peripherally related to the Kraken (it happened at the opening home game).



    And the followup:



    Thought this was a cool story to start 2022 with. :2thumbs:

  • They did a thing about the Kraken on q13 and Levine asked if the honeymoon with the Kraken is over. My answer is It's going to take a hell of a lot more than a slow start to wipe the polish off of this gem, who cares if they didn't start out like Vegas. They will be fine.

    They won’t start winning games unless Gru and the defense whom have been beyond horrible step it up bigtime. Gru is one one the worst goalies in the NHL, and CD isn’t much better but hasn’t had a chance to play much.
    They overspent on 2 huge and long goalie contracts on underachieving goalies, and that’s going to bite them in the ass.

    Do I think the bloom is off the Kraken Rose? No.

    Bad NHL hockey still beats NO NHL hockey any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

  • Ah, damn. I had to step away when the Kraken were up 1-0 over STL with 5 minutes left in the 2nd. Thought they had a chance there.

  • Another frustrating loss, but CD looked better in goal then Gru has lately.

    Great game. MAF the Chicago goalie was outstanding until the shootout.
    I thought once it came down to a shootout we’d lose, as they had a huge goalie advantage.

    Great win!

    I don't know, but I think it's a fair question. Sure seems to be a helluva lot less hype surrounding the Kraken then there was a few months ago. It's almost like they're an afterthought at this point. I barely ever hear anything about them other than a super quick passing mention about whether they won or lost and/or what their current losing streak is up to.

    Sports radio in this town has done a real poor job covering and talking about them. Their home station outside of Ian Furness rarely talks about them.
