    Default TMac is choking again

    First of all, I appreciate the progress he's made with the team so far. But, his decisions when games are on the line have a poor track record (going back to his SJ days)
    .
    - He did not have the team ready to play for Game 6. You've got to shut down McD on the opening face off.
    - He did not roll enough lines earlier in the game, so Kopi and other first liners were so exhausted late in the game. 3rd and 4th lines had bundles of energy and I'm sure they could've kept up with McD here and there. Kupari and Lizotte can hang around McD if they had to.
    - When the team was lethargic, he didn't make adjustments.
    - Lineup changes are questionable. AA on the top line? Put him on the 4th line to create some mismatches.
    - That pull the goalie timing was terrible toward the end of the game...on a line change???
    - Don't get me started on the stupid, predictable PP. PP1 sucks and PP2 is even worse.

    Will just go down with the sinking ship instead of trying to fix it.

    You lost me at the title of your post. I didn’t realize the Kings were expected to be in the playoffs this year, let alone win this series. Honestly, who didn’t expect the Kings to lose the series before it started? The Kings are playing a game 7 against the Oilers, and we’re choking?

    They did come out a bit flat, but we knew Edmonton was going to come fired up for the elimination game. The Kings did great to limit them to 3 goals and an empty. Edmonton also stopped doing silly stuff after the whistle and played a disciplined game which makes them much more of a threat. All in all I'd say both the coaching staff and players are doing a great job in a series in which they really should be over matched.

    The future is bright and we really have some diamonds in that rookie squad.

    I shouldn’t take the bait but here I am. Anytime a line other than Kopi or Danault’s has been caught out against McDavid it’s been messier than a dumpster fire.

    Also AA, Brown, and Stecher won’t be on the team next year. At least one and likely both of Edler and Maata will be gone. Grundstrom won’t be in a top 6 role. Durzi won’t be playing top minutes (if he’s even still here). And as mentioned above, Doughty and Arvidsson. Also, there are about 500 posts on here relating to kids gaining experience this round.

    Last night was painful but this series is already a damn miracle.

    The OP is entitled to his take, but there's no need to start a thread on this. Just share your thoughts in the game thread, like everyone else does.

    On the merits, apparently it's choking if a team doesn't win 3 playoff games in a row. Good to know.
