True - but that statement was from when, one season ago? Good grief, we arguably gave Chicago - you know, the guys that won the Stanley thing - the best series they had last year. We haven't had year 2 yet, but they let Poile go out and add Fisher - that's a pretty good add. Before we start bellyaching that we have legitimate reasons for increased expectations that aren't being met can we at least get into a 2nd PO series? Cause really, if losing a PO series to the team that wins the cup is failure, who's being realistic?

Same thing with the bellyaching from folks about not getting Weber signed yet - good grief, the man said he wanted to get to the off-season to worry about it - let them at least get the season over and negotiate - see if a small-market team can actually move past that mentality and sign their first-ever homegrown superstar.
