What I love about this team and something about the Gainey and Gauthier era is that we have guys with a lot of character, nobody is a cancer and they're like a family or at least so it seems. Not saying there aren't hiccups along the way but this team just seems to have a tremendous amount of character. We have guys with determination, grittyness, solid work ethic, size... yes size, a willingness to go into the dirty areas. We have guys who are good two-way players. We have a lot of balance and a fair bit of depth. If injuries are on our side we could very will win the cup and to anyone lifting their nose at these comments shame on you.
There's a lot going for this team. We lost guys like Koivu, Ribeiro, Latendresse, some of whom we got nothing for, some of whom we may even like to have back (Koivu) but we have a team with a lot of character and they seem really tight knit. They play as a team and they all buy into the system. With that and the stuff I listed above you can win a cup. Also Gauthier has something up his sleeve mark my words. Gainey wouldn't let him throw away a golden opportunity to win the cup like this, that's why we have cap space and at deadline are going to land a star player to put us over the top.
I have complete confidence in this squad and PG. Martin on the other hand makes questionable decisions but I have enough faith in the system and the players they've pieced together to play that system to say if all goes well we have a serious shot. We're the underdogs and don't forget 1993. We did it before and we'll do it again. I don't see it as "when will we get our next cup?" like a Leafs fan. I see it as "it's just a matter of time". Our team has been heading in the right direction for years and haters like it or not they're going to do well and they have done well in the past.
Gomez will bounce back, book it.
God help the league if we do what the Bruins did (they acquired several talented players via trade) and go for a serious run. I'd be thrilled if we got star player + Koivu or something ridiculous like that. Make it happen PG! Even if we don't we're still stacked but it would be a real shame if we didn't make a solid move by deadline latest.
