To say injuries are just an "excuse" basically amounts to saying the team should win no matter the quality of the players playing for it. Which, to be clear, is ****ing absurd.
Problem with your statement, is that the guys who were brought up to play were the best guys on the team, sans Pomms/Vanek. The young guys came up and injected us with a shot of enthusiasm. AGAIN, this team crumbled after the LUCIC INCIDENT. I'd bet anything that it caused an internal riff between guys in the locker room. We had 3 guys on the ice who wore a letter and not one of them did a damn thing....
