This team seems to be swinging downwards in my eyes. Peaked a few years ago, and now our "stars" are playing worse/hurt (Ovechkin, Backstrom, Green) or are gone (Semin). GMGM's grand plan of the Young Guns didnt work.

Yes HE is still here.

I would be happy with a new direction from this franchise. I *fully* understand that a new direction may mean worse results, so be careful what I wish for....right? However, this current direction simply will not = Stanley Cup. It just wont. George has had 15 swipes at the brass ring, and I think his insulation from Job Harm (read = getting fired) will always promote this "playoffs is good enough" mentality from him and this team.

I have seen 30 years of "playoffs is good enough" (1982 til 2012). And I am frankly tired of it.

Many should be as well, but it seems you are not, Tex?
Like the post, but drop the underlined part: the 'trust me' element weakens it.
