Of course you want to win it, but it's seriously not the end of the world if you don't. 50% is a great average for a team.

Anywho, having Perreault isn't going to fix this team in the first week or two... it's going to take some time before we notice anything. Just hang on.
Well, Troy Murray very much disagrees with you. He was pretty upset last night. And when point blank PP goals are scored directly off losing a draw - I don't know how you can say that is a system.
