Last year, 2 years ago, 3 years ago...Making the playoffs and just that was just fine for me...However, this year coming into the 07-08 season, I was expecting the Habs to take the next step, not Cup hopefull step, but contender step...but they still look like exactly the same team they've been the last 3 or 4 years.
- Offensively challenged
- Relying on almost super human peformances of their goalies to win
- small and mostly soft
When is this recipe going to change?? It's not working
I agree with you 417...but you jumped in and quoted me on something that was totally different. The poster that I was talking with suggested that we get rid of certain players, and that would help us for a better playoff run this year as well as clear salary cap. I disagreed and gave my reasons why.
The changes that you are talking about would be considered LONG TERM....getting great young prospects, high draft picks. They would be great to get, but we are talking about making a stronger effort for making the playoffs, this year...not a couple of years down the road.
We are talking apples and oranges here, so I don't understand why you keep quoting me?
Unfortunately Therrien doesn't always think logically..he's more of a "coach from your gut" type...kinda like the George Bush of NHL coaches. - Grant McCagg
