Regardless of how over romanticized the 11-12 squad may be, the fact remains that an identity was built over time and established and we never even gave that group a second chance to learn from that first deep playoff run and come back hungry having come close to a finals appearance. We needed some minor tweaks not a major overhaul, sometimes a group is greater than the sum of it's parts and chemistry goes far beyond just playing out on the ice.

This group looks like they've had their heart torn out! It was evident last year and even more so this year.
haha we even brought in their ex, TERRIBLE head coach as an assistant. Brilliant move, there.

again, before the season started people laughed at my for saying that we would be lucky to even make the playoffs, because Columbus and Detroit were coming, and CBJ was a team on the rise...big time.

laughed at....
