I don't see how we're any different from 2010, 2011, 2009, etc. etc. it all will result in the same IMO.
We have a bunch of top flight young talent who doesn't seem like they do much together. Eberle is a stud, other than that the other guys aren't making much happen. Hall creates scoring chances but can't score goals to save his life.
Reffing...the first Dallas goal was clearly offside as shown on the TSN replay. Now they miss a BLATANT too many men? Also, Whitney literally did not move his legs on a stop and a change of direction from one of the slowest players in the league.
In a game where we have Hordichuk, some guys that are fighting for full time NHL employment (Paajarvi, Harski, Lander, Petrell, Potter) and a guy that is playing his first NHL game Ryan Whitney is by far the worst player on the ice.
