True - but you were in the minority. Most seemed to expect the magic of last year's streak by the 3 to just pick up where it left off.
All I remember thinking as I watched the 3 last spring was that it was just another example of 3 guys getting on a hot streak and meshing for a short stretch - which has happened before. Few lines can sustain a hot streak or have true and consistent chemistry for a full season or more. Stafford had a great run when first joining Roy and Vanek, then the 3 disappeared as an effective line the following year.
