Agree on this. I just don't know if it would have continued through 82 games if the injury situation was different. I guess we'll never know, but I hope to find out this year. If the team limps through to December again then I, too, am going to start questioning the heart of the teams core, and maybe even start sharpening my Julien pitchfork. But right now I am on the fence, and my pitchfork remains in the basement.
