Unless they play their game in that little blue crease, that is.
I made enough comments on the matter in part 2 of the Colorado thread prior to the event. I know our fans and that comes from forty years of watching this team. The writer had an agenda as I stated. He lost and that comes from a lack of knowledge on the topic. Cite the fans' reactions of returning players akin to Gagne, non-polarizing figures like Kerr and Propp or guys like Bob Kelly and Joe Watson. And the list goes on. Don't bring up 1968 and a football game. The problem is 1968 and snowballs will be used again by another writer, and this event will be forgotten just like the fantastic tributes of the past.
