as long as its not a serious injury I believe the hockey gods are actually being kind... giving us a no-risk opportunity to let young players get NHL experience while at the same time solidifying our chances at a top 5 draft pick
If I were Leggy or Pekka I would go to Trotz and ask to be benched for the rest of the year the veteran juju may catch up with them as well, Injuries have just decimated this team. Its hard to evaluate young talent with no veterans to assist them. There thrown out to the wolves and gobbled up. I have deteseted the tank mentalitly and now those do not need to even mention it. The team was not really competitive prior to the injuries now it is just brutal to even watch a game. The chances of winning another game this season is pretty low right now. Heck to be competitive would be a streach the last two stinkers as shutouts. Less Calgary the remaining games mean something to those playing the Preds. The team will not need to tank now there in survival mode. Tonight will set the all time loss string for the team. In feb I feared April would be a disaster but I had no idea it would be this bad. It has been a long time since I have felt they had just no hope for a win but thats were we are.
