I have to agree. As sick as it is to say that 03-04 team was actually fun to watch because we knew not to expect too much out of that team. They weren't exactly playing all rookies out there (other then Staal) by the end of the season we knew it was mostly kids fighting for a job.

Staal, Williams, Bruno St Jacques, Brad Fast, Tomas Malec, Alan Rourke, Vasicek, Vrbata, Bayda, Jaro Svoboda.

That's a far cry from where we are now... but we can only hope we see a similar youth movement come February.

Of course part of why it was fun was because at the end of the season it was Lavihockey. Wide open and completely wreckless. We could use some of that again even with as much of a physical toll as it took on our guys.
