Also, I think people were loving the team they saw score 13 goals in three games... but we haven't seen THAT team arrive since. We've seen other people wearing the same sweaters.
I don't know about that. Most people here have realistic expectations. I mean, just think about the standings if Penner had 10 goals this year. It's little things like that. We just need our top three lines to be AVERAGE offensively and we'd be looking at a totally different year.

I still think Sutter can imprint a responsible offensive system on this group down the stretch. He hasn't practiced all that much with these guys yet. Hopefully he gives Kompon an earful or takes a hands-on approach there.

edit: definitely quoted the wrong post here... BEER will do that though right?
