We overachieved earlier in the year and now everyone is freaking out because we've hit a skid. How long is Torts' leash? It better be pretty freakin' long. He's done a great job creating a team identity and getting his players to buy into a system. He's getting a ton out of young players stepping into big roles. Like others have said WHAT DID (anyone) EXPECT THIS YEAR? We have proven that we have tremendous potential going forward. I still think we'll end up in the playoffs, but in the off-season anyone who thought this team had better than a ~60% chance of making the playoffs was crazy. The only thing on this team that I am 100% unhappy with is Gaborik. Otherwise we're a young team with a strong identity and a good foundation, currently experiencing some growing pains. I'm fine with that. I'm not fine with 7M players showing no heart and being invisible.
