I was.

hated the system we played while still being impressed that we bent so much during the season but never broke.

The fact that we could not score outside of Gaborik that year was clearly evident in the PO's and we were lucky to have gotten as far as we did.

the style is and was perimeter in nature and the propensity to block shots as a defensive style is un healthy. The more you do it, the odds go up that eventually one is going to nick you real good and put you on the shelf.

I enjoyed the success, but to think that was sustainable is a little head in the sand.
