This was not because I'm some sort of blind optimist. Not at all. I'm a Mets fan. That's all that needs to be said about that.

I believe we will win the cup at least once over the next five years or so. I believe we'll do it by staying to course. And I think it'll be that much sweater winning with a hard working homegrown group like this.

Don't worry, you'll figure it out soon enough. Unfortunately, not until it's already happened.

edit: posted here since it seems like the logical carry over from the trade deadline GDT
The "plan" was to have Gordie Clark and Jeff Gorton get him good prospects, and have those same guys remind him it's not smart to sign Chris Drury, Wade Redden and Scott Gomez.

Slats has been good for the past 2 years...any "appreciation threads" before that would actually be blind optimism.

I believe we'll win the cup, too. But not before some tweaking, and mainly because Hank is the best goaltender in the world.

Really, you're obnoxiously full of yourself so i'm not even going to bother debating anymore. Next you'll tell me you foresaw the Gomez signing as amazing because you knew we'd get Ryan McDonagh. The icing on the cake was acting like you were some enlightened higher being for appreciating Plato.
