I know that this isn't the most popular sentiment but I feel as though we aren't going to do anything significant this season anyway. We have done nothing to make ourselves better while the majority of teams in our division and conference have gotten better. How are we supposed to compete with them? We overly rely on two or three players to help us win games. What happens if one of them goes down with an injury (cause we all know Gaborik is due
)? I know Lundqvist will play his heart out but he deserves a better team than this. I hope none of our prospects make the team this year because I feel they will be better served playing in the AHL, college, minors, etc. this year.
Even if that means having Wade Effing Redden on our team for another effing year.
This is only my opinion of how our 2010-2011 season should proceed and I think it is a lost year.
I absolutely agree and share the same sentiment except for the bolded parts. There's no need to rush the kids and we'll be fighting the Islanders for the basement in the division solely on the basis that the Flyers, Devils, and Penguins all improved this offseason.
However, what kind of fan are you to actually WANT to see the team lose? Just because I'm pessimistic about this upcoming season doesn't mean I'll be rooting like hell for them to do well regardless.
I feel that Redden has one more year. If he doesn't improve in comparison from the past two seasons, he's out on his ass and will have a one way ticket to Hartford stamped for him. I'm betting on the latter happening though.
