Saturday I am just going to watch the Blue Jackets.
Most bone headed trade in recent memory. We were two wins from the Stanley Cup finals and we moved a handful of pieces with the WORST team in the league! There was a reason for that.
We brought in perennial losers in place of quality role players. When you're that close to winning it all you don't look for a complete overhaul of your forwards. You look for a way to compliment the roster you already have to push them over the top.
Those Jackets haven't been too bad since. And it's not just coincidence.
I wish HBO was doing a 24/7 on us right now so we could hear what was going on in the locker room/
Cally: "Come on guys this is embarrassing! Play with some ****ing heart!"
AV: "Yeah! Listen to what he said! Did anybody happen to bring an extra pack of gum?"
Personally, I don't think that's Cally, at all.
I don't think he says jack, really. He wears the C because he's our "shining exemplar" but he doesn't possess leadership skills. He leads through his play; you're supposed to see his energy, be inspired and follow suit. I don't think he has a motivational speaking gene in his DNA.
