I'm not too angry.
When you rationalise it.
1. Our D is so banged up we have 2 of our top 5 out completely, 2 obviously carrying knocks, and our backup D men out injured as well!
Kimmo (carrying injury)
Grossmann (carrying injury)
Carle (carrying permanent brain and wrist injuries)
Kubina (apparently injured)
Out of 10 guys 3 are out, 3 are playing injured and 1 is over the hill, one is inexperienced. What other D in the NHL is in such bad injury trouble.
2. The team was completely rebuilt, lots of exciting, young players, who will be great for years.
3. At the start of the year I figured we would scrape into the playoffs, 1st round exit.
4. We watched Giroux turn into a superstar.
