5 years????


They missed the playoffs for 3 years and made it in 6th spot this season. Being this competitive; this is rebuilt as going forward the expectations and in theory performance will only go up.

Plus, there's the fact that our cupboard was as bare as can be with prospects and most of our good players were shipped off by Bill Laurie. We started from scratch and went from a joke to a threat in 4 years.

I don't understand the purpose of this post other than some sort of sour grapes

Yeah, its ironic the one big free agent splash signing, Kariya, hasn't participated this year (hardly at all) in the turn-around.

I think the assist on the Crombeen score should probably go more to Armstrong than Jarmo, but either way how can you not absolutely love the direction and future of this team. Damn its good to be a Blues fan! Now lets get a split tonight....
