The same JVR who was concussed through out January and February? If only we'd traded Suter for something before the deadline and the Devils traded Parise for something than we could have lost to NJ in the finals because moving a known quality who fills a key role on a roster makes so much sense.

For all of the times you call others "pollyannas", it seems that those who take a more measured look at this team and its performance tend to gauge where things are and where they are going much more accurately than you and your constant gloom/doom view. The proclamations that we're going to suck and won't make the playoffs keep getting met by 100 point seasons and playoff appearances. There are flaws in the team, there are areas that could use improvement, but this is a very good team year in and year out. There simply isn't a need for drastic overhauls, just tweaks. Of course, realizing and admitting that reveals just how over the top the rants and calling people "pollyannas" truly is.
