teams are locking up all their players and its harder and harder to sign FA without over paying completely because theres no one available.. Trades? unless your willing to move serious pieces your not getting **** back that can step in and play like a g or cally..

we've missed the playoffs 1 in 9 years, how are we a mediocre team or both our players are mediocre.. thorton was traded by boston at like 25yrs old bc he didnt have what it takes to win.. if we havent done ****, neither has SJ.. stop just looking at stats, they dont mean **** and don't tell the story.. it takes a lot to win a cup and a lot more then one or 2 players.. its a team full of studs with one goal in mind..
I keep hearing the argument that in the last 9 years we've missed the playoffs once. So what? Did we win anything from them? No. Were they close to winning? Once, when literally every star aligned in this team's favor in 2012, and they still couldn't do it.

It's not that hard to make the playoffs in the NHL. Saying we're usually in it doesn't do anything for me as an argument.
