It's almost beautiful if you look at it in a certain way...
They're not fast, yet they're not big.
They're not skilled, yet they're not mean.
They've got one really big guy, but the guy next to him is reeeaaalllly small.
That really big, intimidating tough guy, might be the most disappointing fighter in the NHL.
They pay a ton of money to bring in top level talent, those guys end up being pretty much the worst players on the team.
It's a beautiful disaster that Sather has given us.
Our forwards aren't offensively gifted enough to consistently overmatch the other team's forwards.
But they're not defensively gifted enough to consistently overmatch their forwards either.
Our defense exhibits no compelling offensive threat,
And yet they're defense isn't particularly overwhelming, either.
What style of play combined with this roster would be expected to realistically beat teams like the Sharks, Blackhawks, Penguins, etc? Especially through something like a seven game playoff series? I wonder how it works out in Sather's head. What does he think he's doing? Does he believe he's assembled a Cup worthy team? WHY WON'T HE LET US IN?!?
The scariest part is I truly have no idea where the change in this team is going to come from, and I have little to no faith in Sather's ability to handle what might need to come next.
