You know what you are if you're checking the standings in March and you're counting how many overtime losses the team needs to finish in 8th? You're mediocre.
A real warrior and champion asks what it takes to win the brass ring, to go for it all. I've laid out a Stanley Cup strategy precisely because I'm competitive.
The anti-tankers don't have a Stanley Cup strategy. They talk about Shane Doan, who is the roadmap to finishing in 10th.
Why would they want to finish 8th? We have seen teams with less talent than this one finish top 3(see Panthers, Florida last year). The division is weak, before we start dumping players left and right, let's at least see what the additions and a more healthy squad can do.
Not sure how Doan would help anybody finish 10th, he was a big cog in a team lacking on skill but high on grit and discipline in Phoenix that had a sweet year last year.
