What we have now makes me a panda. The rain has come back. The obstacles are apparently blurry.
Think you're a bit too "stuck in the past" and nostalgic regarding Cleary. But I think management is obviously the same way.

Guy really hasn't been a relevant hockey player in like 3 years. It's not like his decline is a sudden development. He's been awful for the better part of the last two years.
