I am disappointed with this years Pats team. After last year and the promise to build on that season, this year has beena bummer. I cannot blame teh coaches since they have nothing to work with.
Reading the paper and Harder's blog it was prett clear that the Pats didn't push back because they couldn't. This team is simply too SMALL. When half of your forwards are about 5'10" you won't win many battles. You can't match lines on the road. The T-Birds manhandled us all night long last home game and if not for Hewitt and that they were playing their back-up goalie we would have certainly lost.

After last season's exit from the playoffs the GM and coach talked about getting bigger and tougher. Recently a Pats player said in the paper that some of the smaller players were afraid of MJ last year because of the their size and toughness. If your afaid, your beat already.

The measure of a team is how they play on the road. We are awful so it stands that we are 11 in a 12 team conference. It is nothing too imopressive to beat us these days, particularly when we are on the road. This team has been poorly constructed and the blame has to lay with the management and scouting.

Listening to Phil and Daniel(who are great especially Phil) sounded like a pretty wacky game!

Pats are like the regina secondary, too small to be effective. Both teams portray regina accurately, too small to be effective or relevant.

Are pats fans really shocked?... I mean take Weal out of last years lineup and this is what you guys have. You had no talent last year other than him so what made the fans think they would be better this year than last?

The players for the pats were an embarrassment to the organization. A total bloodbath last night.

there is nothing wrong with our talent upfront we dont have aproblem scoring we are getting scoring from more players then we ever have the past 5 or 6 yrs which was normally a player named jordan who would score.

The problem with our team is the inexperience on the defense, we have alot of potential on the defense but they just need time to grow. We have a very strong group of 17yr old Dmen in Burroughs, Williams, Hand those 3 players combined at the start of the year had under 50games experience which 99% of it was all Burroughs.

I dont see how Pats fans expected to be a strong team again this year, we have lost 4 of our top 5 Dmen last year (davidson, marincin, underwood, bidlevskii) we had a very strong defense on paper & on the ice held temas to under 30 shots on a regular basis, now this year when our defense is very young & inexperience fans expect the same result as last year. Time to give ur heads a shake & let this group grow, our whole conference is not that strong as bad as we may of been we r still only 2pts out of 8th & yet still ahead of stoon even tho they got 3 games in hand.
