Guess what, we're the better team and we're down 3-1. Was Phoenix ever mentioned as a team favored to get to the Finals? No. Were we? There was a lot of talk for us making a deep run. So how are we going to sugar coat this years version of the team if we go out after tonight? Well, we just didn't catch any breaks? AK and Rads blew it for us? The players just didn't put it all together? We got beat by a better team? Well wait, if we use that last line, that isn't the case, we got beat by a team playing better hockey than we are at the moment. So why have the Preds never risen to that challenge of being the lesser team but played better than the higher seeded or better team?
At the end of the day it's about results and the results are what they are. They can be twisted, turned, sugar coated, whatever you'd like to do to them. You can say I'm not patient and it's not fair that Trotz isn't being given a fair chance to represent his skill set as a coach. Bottom line he has a losing record in the playoffs. Bottom line is we have gotten as far as the second round and petered out. Bottom line is it's the same argument year in and year out. Square peg round hole. He had the team to do what we've all been clamoring for since the inception of this franchise and the bar had been set to go deep. If going to the second round is good enough for you, then that's your prerogative,
I have no problem with it. At the same time, I have higher expectations for this franchise
Glenn you sure you aren't a closet HABS fan this is exactly how most HABS fans feel. Just making it in is not good enough out in the first second or third round is still a failure the CUP is where the glory lies anything less is failure.
