After firing head coach Joel Quenneville, things haven't improved at all.
The team is still struggling on the powerplay and looking lost defensively.
With five losses in a row, Patrick Kane was asked about what he thinks is the problem is.
“I think it just comes down to, simply, not being ready to play,” he said. “I think that’s the biggest thing.”
If that's the case, that's a pretty big problem for both the coaching staff and players.
“It seems like we’re starting these games and waiting to see what’s going to happen, and kind of feel it out a little bit and then kind of go from there, and it’s just putting us behind the 8-ball,” he said. “You’ve seen these past whatever number of games — we’re down and it’s tough to come back in this league. Teams can ‘D’ it up pretty good.
“It’s been a common thread, definitely a talking point in here, and we want to try to figure it out. But it all comes down to just being ready to play and making sure we’re dictating the pace right away instead of waiting around for the other team.”
What do you think of Kane's comments?
