I think your right. Crosby especially looks completely checked out. Dallas broadcast was all over him.
 
The last 36 games going back to last season Pittsburgh is averaging 1.63 goals per game.  Once teams saw Johnston's "system" it was game over.  There's a reason he's been in juniors forever.
 
edit-I really wish your guys' club had fired Claude already b/c I think his hard ass ways are exactly what the Penguins need right now.  They've had it real easy since Therrien departed and need a strong coach back in charge.

Calgary losing 4-0 in Brooklyn. About to fall to 2-7-0 and follow in the Avs and Leafs footsteps in learning about regression.

Ducks and Blackhawks are scoreless after 1. Ducks are 1-5-1 and already 8 points out of a playoff spot. Boudreau doesn't have much rope left.

Hell of a stat line for Dougie in this one. 0 0 0 -3 2PIM (a clearing the puck over the glass that resulted in the other NY goal) 2 shots on net.

Down Goes Brown had a good line about the Ducks today.

Calgary was ridiculously lucky last year. 3rd worst CF%. They got into the playoffs by having some crazy 3rd period differentials and scoring 10 goals with the goalie pulled. Early this year they still suck at possession, they aren't as lucky, and their goaltending has been a disaster.

They should probably fire Hartley. On paper, they are quite talented.

Shades of 2007, Hartley's Thrashers start out 0-6 the year after their playoff appearance. He was promptly canned.
