Too many Hab fans watch games based on "expectations". It's what they expect a player to perform, and their expectations are always overblown and overexaggerated. Higgins should score 40 goals. Andrei Kostitsyn should be our Kovalchuk. Kovalev should score 40 and lead our team in scoring. Koivu should be able to score anytime the game is tied. Price should never let in a bad goal or ever have a bad game. Komisarek should never have a - on his name after a game. Latendresse should be a top line power forward who eats people alive and skates like the wind. Chipchura should be Bob Gainey. Tanguay should score every game. Plekanec should be just as good as Ribiero. The list goes on.

Top it off that a lot of these same Hab fans are comparing us to the Bruins every day, envious of a first place in the Conference spot they had expectations that the team would have, since we had it last season. Everyone kind of forgets that Pittsburgh sort of tossed their final game on purpose.

If they just watched the games and cheered for the players who worked hard and hoped for the best, these boards would be void of angered discussion.
