We may need a few breaks...which we're notorious for not getting, but we have as good a shot as anyone in the East. Get to the Finals and I like this team...if only it were so easy. Great post but I do think you underestimate this Team.
I have become a cynic. Looking good in the regular season has never been our problem. In the crunch, we find a way to collapse.
Right now, we are devoid of anybody I would call a play-off hero. In fact, our players are known for overwhelmingly bombing in the post season. JR, Primeau, Burke, Amonte, LeClair even Rico (last 5+ years) have tanked it in the post-season. IMO, we are no better than the 3rd or 4th best team in the East. Add in several Western teams and I don't like our chances at the Cup. Our best days are behind us.
Earlier this year, I said rebuild. I agree with what Snyder said last year completely"
If we can't win with Hitchcock, we can't win at all
. We didn't win. IMO, our best shot at the Cup will be in the post-CBA era with a team built around Gagne and Pitkanen. I wanted Williams to be the captain of that team, but that can't happen now.
