Aside from the evidence from all pro sports leagues everywhere, we just saw it with our very own eyes this year.

Predictions of doom and gloom were forecast after a bad preseason which culminated in a 7-1 loss to Dallas. Theo, in particular, was held over the coals, and we all wondered how we would score if our most skilled player in the organisation were to sent to be juniors.

Well we can all see that none of that really mattered, just like it never has. If the team is actually good, the 82 games in the real season will bear that out. The same if the team is bad. 7 pre-season games determines NOTHING.

You can be a good team, and have a good preseason. You can be a bad team and have a bad preseason. You can be good but play bad, and be bad but play good. Either way, its not your performance in the preseason that determines anything.

So next year lets not cry ourselves to death after a pres-season loss OK?
No disagreement, but it won't change a thing next September ...

This team could win the Cup or finish dead last and we'll still be convinced that a single loss is the kiss of death for the entire season.
