Captain Hindsight says, "should have traded Suter at the deadline"
For the record, I said we should have traded Suter last offseason if we couldn't sign him.
Can believe it took us this long to get SK off the 1st line. At least at center you can understand our lack of depth, who is going to do better offensively than FIsher/Legwand? Certainly not paul effin guastaud.
The worst thing about this other than not having hockey that I really care about for a while is the guy at the grocery store (Wings fan who happens to have fake finger nails...) is going to say "Told ya so" even though when we discussed the game earlier I said "I hope the Preds pull it out. If they win tonight they could plausibly force game 7". I said basically the same thing last year during the Vancouver series, and he still rubbed it in like I was being arrogant...
Ah yes, everyone who complains about our finish is part of the group that said we were done earlier this year. Right.
No ... but there are a group of people here who are only content when complaining. Every fall there is a contingent who proclaims we're done and won't make the playoffs. Then we get the proclamations that Trotz can never win a series. When he does, we see the he can't win a second round.
While everyone is so busy complaining we're done tonight ... WILSON SCORES and we're still in this game. We might lose, but, the team isn't collapsing like the HF "fan" (for lack of a more accurate word that won't get me banned) support.
