I just don't see any profit in continuing to hammer on Lou. simple fact is that our ability to score goals in the last half of this season, during the SCF and in this years abortive run were horrible. Simple fact is that our defence was incrediby porus once again this year with a series of incredible mental mistakes. Did Lou get blown out a couple times vs. Boston? Sure did. Did he bounce right back at skunk them a couple of times... sure did. Simple fact is that without Lou we were out in 4 during last years SFC. Simple fact is that without Lou and Cory playing stellar hockey through DEC-Feb we'd have been fighting for 8th in our conference and not the President's Trophy.
Bottom line this year is Lou needs to be traded - both for him and for us. We need the return and cap space to fill other glaring holes (of which I think defense is the biggest) and Lou needs a fresh start where he can use the new maturity and calm he found this last year to build a less dysfunctional relationship with the fanbase. Fact is the market on goalies favours us right now. Fact is the likely changes to the cap also favour us. I am hopeful for a solid return on a Lou trade. Not over the moon, just solid.
I am also awaiting next year wand wondering how long it is before the bash Cory bandwagon starts. What's the measure. Gotta have a 0.93 save next year and sub 2.0 gaa.... or are we thinking success will be .92 and 2.5... or are we looking for 30+ wins in 60 starts..... or is it win the cup or you are a bum?
Dear Mr. Waffler...have you ever met Roberto? Ever wonder why the team plays better in front of Cory than Luo? RL is a veteran with a gold medal and strong leadership capabilities but he also happens to be a dick.
He has to go because a teams synergy is important. An intangible that wins Cups.
Just my very (more) important opinion than anyone else's because I am a celebrity on here
