As for AO... the truth is, he was a great scorer only... and the last time I checked, there are "2" ends of the ice.

FORGOT: I realize you are a true fan... and passionate about the team. I respect that.
He's also an above average playmaker and by far our most imposing hitter.

Briere doesn't know the defensive zone from his cloaca and he's been absolute gold in the playoffs in his career. I think Ovechkin is fairly similar in that regard, and when used properly his defensive issues can be masked and his offensive/physical gifts used effectively enough to win series. I generally agree in having a prototypical playoff warrior be well versed in offense, defense and physical play but guys like Briere, Ovechkin or Franzen are so good in the spring they can be gamebreakers even with their defects.

I've been on board since the 3rd or 4th game.

Does that make me Captain or First Mate?

Either way a room with one of those circular windows would be nice.

We've already hit the iceberg and sunk, now we're just in the life rafts floating aimlessly with the current.

There's a pretty good blog on ESPN Insider about the long term approach.

I'm fine with throwing in the towel this season. That would do way more for the team than eeking out a playoff run or barely getting to mediocrity.

Adding a top 2 or 3 pick, the Swede, maybe Kuznetsov post Olympics, and maybe Wilson would be a heck of a talent infusion. Fast.

They give me a little sign of life. Just enough to hurt me again.

I am looking for a top five pick. The last thing I want is for this team to finish 9th or 10th.

10th pick wouldn't be bad... Still could get Nichushkin.

I suspect Mr Gone may be Clive Parker.

Count me in, as long as they have internet so I can complain the entire time to strangers.

My only real fear is that we string a few wins together and another year passes and nothing really changes.

The sad truth its a true love hate relationship. And would enjoy the ride of some wins. But I know I would only end up in my same place disappointed and mad in the end.

OK, I couldn't realize it was last years thread. Even MacKinnonn's name wasn't enough for me. It's just the same **** another year probably.

It is just another year. The team sucks out of the gate. We ***** about it. Ted says be patient. GMGM tells us we don't know what we're talking about and the team rebounds to make a late rush. Only this year, the rest of the division won't stink up the joint and let us pass them.

This management team has had ample opportunity to put together a quality team and the only thing they've accomplished is division banners (bfd), a presidents trophy and early playoff exits.

As long as Ted Leonsis equates mediocrity and arena sell outs to success this won't change until GMGM retires.
