So this years excuse is a hot goalie and the bounces just didn't go our way. I love it. Every year it's something new as to why we don't advance or move forward. What's next year going to be, well, we lost Suter and a bunch of guys to free agency so it was more of a rebuild year for us but hey, we still made the playoffs?

Maybe it was the stars weren't aligned properly. Maybe it was the guys on the ice had a layoff and weren't prepared to play. Maybe our coach didn't change his strategy to figure out how to get around 5 guys getting in front of Smith and playing great team defense? Maybe it was our PP gone sour. At the end of the day it's just excuses. We got beat by a better team. Talent wise I think on paper we are better but Phoenix played a great team game. We didn't. We didn't have 20 guys on the bench each night buying into what got us there. Whether it's the players or the coaches blame, it doesn't matter. We're not watching hockey right now because of it.
