you mean their GM made the necessary adjustments to make sure they could compete without him? hmmm, now isn't that an example of good management, maybe Chiarelli can "tutor" our management team.


1- I specifically pointed out "best FORWARD".

2-

Revisionist history at it's finest.
just b/c you tell yourself something over and over, doesn't make it true.

2007-08 Boston Bruins NHL 74 15 63 78
2008-09 Boston Bruins NHL 82 25 63 88

funny that when it comes to us, several posters lament the fact that all we need is an elite C... you know, the kind that can put up PPG+ production consistently.

elite goalies & elite #1 dmen are always most valuable, doesn't negate or reduce the value of having a #1 C capable of Savard's quality.

yeah, because losing your #1C, who also happens to be the best player in the league is supposed to have no effect???

Come on.

Point is that, DESPITE losing such a valuable player and key cog to their team, they are STILL very much a top team in the league (6th overall currently).

Price was clearly the team MVP last year, and as good as Markov is, he was never quite in the Hart trophy conversation the way Price rightfully was last year.

Even with a healthy Markov, Price at the level he was at, like Lundqvist, was the MVP.

Without Price, we weren't anywhere close to a playoff team last year... and with him taking a bit of a step back this year... lottery here we come.

and why, please explain, do you think this happens... if not for the difference in how well a team is managed?
