Some times I amazed at the things poeple say. THey have this ideal team in their head, then say we need this or that to be a ideal team, however they don't look around and see that the teams that wins the cups have holes. Boston has never had a true #1 C. Bergeron is a stud, but not the elite point producer most people think of. Chicago went into the year with a really unproven goalie... ect.. ect. the list goes on. No team lives up to peoples idea of what a perfect team with no holes is.
