Its worse for me.
I was at my 3rd year at UBC the first time they made the finals. I am also closer to retirement than the start of my career. If Schneider gets a better return, do the deal and get the cup. I'll take even 10yrs in the wilderness after that. It couldn't be worse than the Pride Hustle Desire (PHD) days.

This is why I get incredibly frustrated reading some of the comments from fans who have recently started following this team, so have no perspective on how bad it could be.
