certainly sakic isn't the young gun he used to be. but i also think that the team's slow start may have affected his overall game as well.

as a whole, this team has been disappointing. although the players seem to be working hard, they just can't execute a finely played simple game (i.e. they just don't excel at doing the basics yet). consequently that has affected the team's chemistry and the players (at least the forwards) look disjointed right now. IMO, this problem can be rectified over time with a little familiarity....or a coaching change may be in need. PL KNOWS this team's chemistry is vital to its cup hopes. however, no matter how many personnel changes he makes, its up to the players to play the simpler game and work as hard as they did in 2001. as far as this season is concerned, this team's cup chances don't look too optimisitic right now. with so much at stake, so little has been accomplished.

you guys know im a pessimist and ill freely admit right now, im worried.

on the bright side, many people are calling the avs trade for kono a steal for PL (see Clement chat on ESPN.com, check out hotstove on HNIC)
