I just wish we still had O'reilly, Wensink and Jonathan. And a REAL captain wearing the honored "C" like Johnny "The Chief" Bucyk. And I'm not even watch on the 18th because this team is so chock-full of marshmallows I don't think they even know HOW to retaliate.
Look what we have...Paille, Ryder, Krejci, Satab, Sturm, Hunwick, Recchi and Wideman. Chucky Kobasew or Glen Metropolit have more heart than all these guys put together.
Ciarelli and Neely need to go. If they want to tinker with something, get them a garage and they can work on old cars or something but LEAVE MY HOCKEY TEAM ALONE!!!!
They have ruined this team for a long time to come (see recent large contracts for mediocre players) and they REALLY need to leave.
With Neely's mentorship, Lucic is now a total cream puff who has maybe two weak fights and 3-4 hits all season.
And one year after winning the Norris, Zdeno Chara (one of slow feet who bumbles about with no real purpose on the ice) has proven (at least to me) that his Norris-winning performance was a FLUKE! Bigbird on skates.
I actually hope the defending Stanley Cup Champions come in here...kick this team's you-know-what up and down the ice and win 8-0. Maybe THEN there will be a change in leadership and a new philosophy up there in the glamour boxes.
Sad but true, ...that's the only way this team is going to get ANY BETTER!!
