It was just drug out for a few more years, only since this year and parts of last has it started to show up.
I agree mostly with you. I love Lidstrom, but he is not utilized much anymore. He doesn't kill penalties due to his injury/age. That's a huge top defensemen NOT being used, or used more sparingly. Not more than 2 years ago he was playing 30 minutes a game still.

Homer had his day, but he's really fallen off. Bertuzzi is just too slow.

Alot of the guys on my team have great talent, but they're just not quick enough for playoff hockey anymore. Lids' day is passing by unfortunately. He's getting slower while the game is getting faster.

I could break my team down but now's not the time lol, too emotional. Let's just say, they really need to go out and buy some young and speedy, hungry talent with all the cap room they'll have after this season.
