Bob knows what I am saying to him. All that schmaltz....and now we could actually miss the playoffs.

*If* that happens, then what is the defense of this regime?

That said,

Fire George
When did I ever say we are guaranteed to make the playoffs this year? I said I like the direction. This to me means I like the trend. I didn't say we have fully arrived at the destination.

In fact I have expressly pointed out that some of it (Wilson, Latta, offseason restructuring) has not come to fruition. Its not going to happen overnight.

Think you need to let the anger go a bit my man. Its not worth getting all stressed out about. Keep things in proper perspective.

Hold on there. You are sounding like a Toronto fan or one of those Boston fans that was saying they need to trade everyone after we came back and beat them earlier this year.

It was 1 loss. They didn't "mail it in". They did not "dog it" Jagr style. They didn't have the energy where Ottawa did.

You won't even remember this game a year from now. If we rewind to every stanley cup winner from previous years we can find a dozen games where they didn't have gas in the regular season.
