Me too...come a long way since this
I posted all because management showed some ballz and made two gutsy trades although one of them I wasn't really expecting but now understand more. I like what we've done and I give Holmgren and Snider credit where credit is due....although I still think Snider was the impetus given how Holmgren seemed bothered by what he HAD to do....
Snider is one shrewd businessman and I'm glad he changed his paradigm with the loyalty thing and made a good business move. We couldn't go on with the little groups and bad culture in the room and the depression-like farm system...now we're restocked and actually have so much depth it's hard to manage the ice time....good problem to have!
BTW the whole burn out thing is something that shouldn't be confined to just rookies..heck we have veterans that are going to need to maintain their performance through so many games and the playoffs....
