It's Peltonen's fault? Dvorak's? I can see Stumpel, but the 3rd and 4th liners? They aren't depended upon to push this team into the playoffs, not like Olli, Horton, Weiss, Allen, or Bouw. I don't see Laraque as being the one blamed for the Pens not winning the Cup.
Sorry, when the star players are seen floating about when they're depended upon to puch this team into the playoffs more than the others, they get the finger pointed at them. That's the nature of the beast. I don't get how any of you guys can't see that. How was Olli's play OK with any of you? had he picked his play up, would we have made it? I don't know. Fact is, he certainly didn't help things.
You say facts are facts, well, the fact is that Olli floated out there and that attributed to the comments made by Sutter and Gillis as to why they didn't push hard to acquire him. Do any of you take that into account when talking about the trade? Or do you discount those comments, too?
You're implying Jay coasted? If the 3rd and 4th liners contributed ANYTHING they would have been a playoff team.
