That's correct. The season we finished last was not a fluke. Last year, I'd say we're closer to what we saw at the end of the season. And this season:
We have a broken enforcer
A shrimp who had a crappy camp imho
An ageing and ailing captain
A goalie who might be great… one day, maybe?
You're right. We're a powerhouse.
You still never answered what aspect of last season we can not possibly repeat this season. But it's hilarious that you think last season was a fluke, yet the last place finish wasn't. Give me a break.
Broken enforcer? Shrimp with crappy preseason games? Aging captain? Goalie who isn't always the best? Are you trying to tell me we didn't deal with any of that last season when Prust was injured, when Desharnais struggled, when Gionta was injured twice, and when Price struggled near the end of the season?
Oh wait, WE DEALT WITH ALL OF THAT. And we still finished 2nd in the East. Thank you.
