This season, we're the hockey equivalent of the Boston Red Sox. Top 5 payroll in the league, get off to a crappy start, now the Jackets will follow suit like them and we'll vault into the playoff picture, only to piss it away and finish 9th-10th in the conference, and get that "coveted" 2nd-tier draft pick like we always do.
As long as our fan base doesn't turn into the hockey equivalent of the Red Sox.....everything's "wicked" this and "Yankees sock" that.
yeah, the bench shortening in the 2nd pd is starting to really perplex me...I don't get it...
It's called Aaron Johnson and Kris Russell are playing so poorly he feels he has no choice. As for the Brassard benching, he hasn't shown much this year and I really have no problem with it. He's missed on a few doorstep opportunities that should have been goals against Detroit and Chicago and always seems to be falling down on plays. John Moore has outplayed Johnson and Russell, once Methot is back I feel Johnson will be in Springfield and Moore might take Russell's spot when Martinek is healthy.
