hockey people know this as well. some fans here hate him because he wasn't able to produce a winner with table scraps. hey - it's their prerogative. just wish we didn't have to see it day after day here. (would have also hoped that maybe they might've learned some humility after watching the playoffs last year but that's a bit too much to ask i guess).
