20 Years...holy cow!
The longest time between cups before than was 7.
personally, I had just graduated college with an Engineering degree and was at home that night with friends. We celebrated by going out to a night club after HNIC went off the air.
Twenty years, most of it were years of frustration
- Ronald Corey hired as team president who hired Houle and Trembly
- Trade of Patrick Roy
- Trade of John LeClair for Recchi; then watching both of them kill us for years
- 14.7 seconds left when Richards tied the game and the Lightening went on to the cup
- In control of the Hurricanes until Williams high sticked Koivu; lost our captain and the series
- most of the 80s when we sent guys like Yuha Lind over the boards; woeful lack of talent
- The Gomez deal
- many more
Am I optimistic about the future.. Well 50-50;
-Bergevin has put together a solid knowledgeable team but Moen,DD, Boulion extensions have me a little skeptical.
- The cupboard is being stocked with quality prospects.
To me this draft is a watershed moment; does THIS management group really recognize that our size and team toughness needs tobe addressed and will they go after a Mantha type player(s) with all those picks this year.
As much as I hate the Bruins, they are a team with a great mix of skill, size, toughness and execute it well.
Twenty years...I would have partied a little harder if I had known!.
