It amazes me how after all these years people are starting to understand that we have been poorly built for years. Extremely frustrating because I think I could have done a better job than both Gainey and Gauthier combined. Yes....I said it.
I'm fine with the Wings model....now...find me a Datzyuk and a Zetterberg and THEN we'll model the Wings. Everything else was a pretty stupid idea to have. By the way, even the speed part I don't buy. People freaking out over the Habs speed and then you watch at least half of the team out west and you wonder who put the game at fast forward....I believe that this speed thing was just a way to find an identity. Yes, we were speedy...but so were at least 15 other teams in the league....
