No wonder our fan base has a bad rep.....
Relax...I have my doubts with this group come the playoffs, not the mean nothing season. I believe those feelings are legitimate. This group has issues with teams who get in their faces. Trust me, Santorelli, Richardson and Stanton won't change that. I fully expect this team to have another wonderful regular season, however I'm not convinced that we won't see what we saw last night come the playoffs. Something wrong with that?
I agree Dude. The first line folded like a pup tent last night. Same old, same old, as far as a team built with playoff grit. Making the playoffs is one thing but having to beat, in all probability, two of LA, SJS, Ducks, is a tall order. All three know how to play us to shut us down. In a one off game we have a chance each night but in a 7 game series we don't stack up right now. With SJS they were without Burns, the type of forward that kills us. If he is healthy and in the playoffs a SJS team we would meat would be more like the team we faced the first two games, not the last one.
I also agree they will in all probability have an acceptable regular season. Still not sure if now is the time for a make over, a make over that would cost us a top 4 on the back end, to upgrade up front.
