Sather Screwed Us

We are a system team even though we have only seen it executed sparingly this season. Get to the puck first, put on relentless pressure, move the puck up ice with transition, etc.

So why the hell did we waste HUUUUGE amounts of cap space on players who reap such little benefits. Im talking about Redden, Rozsival and Drury.

The bottom line is we only give ourselves a chance to win when the facets listed above are on display. Then we also are able to steal victories when 3 guys, count them 3, are on their game even if the team isnt firing on all cylinders - Lundqvist Gomez and Zherdev.

The fact that we have close to 19 million dollars locked up in 3 guys who are only good as part of the team game but really dont have one ounce of game breaking ability in their bodies is mind-boggling.

What other teams even have 3 guys making 19 million+, detroit, pittsburgh....without looking it up its probably not more than 5. now go through those teams and see if those players are solid citizens who blend in with the team or do they put the team on their back more often than not.

I know (read: hope) I am preaching to the choir. The bottom line is that even though the first 13 games were a lot of fun watching the wins pile up, how can we really have high expectations and more importantly how can we not be extremely scared of the future when these 3 guys [B]decline as they age[B]
