The excuses will never end with this team. Injuries, new coach and system every second year...yada yada yada. We have more skilled guys than we can fit on the top two lines so we should be able to over come the Hall injury.
yup. bottom line is they are not that good, while other teams are. this pretty much salts the season. looking at another top 5 pick, maybe top 3.

pessimistic? Yes. when i see the tiniest shread of reason for hope, i might change my mind.

Lars Eller: 'they play alittle bit like a junior team'. no doubt
