And all of those teams are ahead of us or close to us in the standings. Torts system is built to protect the goalie anyway...FIND A WAY TO GET IT DONE WITH OR WITHOUT HANK.
Well said.

In a strange way, losing the cornerstone of a team often makes the rest of the guys better. Instead of leaning on the star player to do everything, everyone has to step up and rally.

Maybe, just maybe, this is what the team needs to gel and become a new band of brothers...
