I just remembered, I thought it would be a bad idea to put Nieto in the nhl this year for more than 9 games.

I thought trading Cheechoo was a mistake.

I thought the package for Burns was going to be DW's biggest mistake.

Only 29 posts when asked about things we were wrong about over the 20+ years of the Sharks...yet endless threads & posts about how inept management is, and which players if acquired would ensure a Cup (and the majority of these posts don't even list things people were wrongabout).

I've been wrong, about plenty. Too many to list & recall. Not to rip from another poster, but I nodded my head in agreement with every bulletpoint of bigwillie, especially Guerin.

Another for me was the aquisition of Blake, didn't think he had much left, and man oh man was I glad to be wrong. I was a huge Mitchell fan, loved his game & fire, and maybe it was the injuries...but I'm guessing the whole time I way overrated him. I also liked the Heatley for Havlat trade (facepalm).

And yes...I would have sworn we'd have a Cup by now (double facepalm).

We have the luxury of being right about what didn't happen while management is right or wrong based on what did happen. We're right, for example, if a player we liked that did NOT get signed does well, but management has to jump through so many hurdles to sign that player, in addition to wanting him in the first place, then that player goes as the team goes ... Yeah, if we're wrong as much as management, we REALLY suck.

Thought Bernier was going to be better than he turned out to be. And I based that solely on a couple goals he had where he dipped the shoulder and dragged the puck past the defender from the outside. It looked so slick.

Found it! Well one of them

Well if you think about it ... if we had never gotten heatley we might have gotten some other more useful players through all those years. Well granted, heatley had some effective years for us, but we wouldnt have been through the havlat debacle.

I loved Bernier. I was a huge Owen Nolan fan and was hoping we found another power forward that could pot 30 goals and be a bad-ass. Swing and a miss.

Also, I really liked Toskala over Nabby.

I thought burish would be reliable.

I thought Irwin could breakout this past season

I wanted to give up on Demers

Thought Galiardi could reach 40 again

I'm always right. Even when I'm wrong.

I don't really remember all the crazy **** I spew so if anyone remembers any, let me know. I still stand by Semenov.

Semenov left for family reasons, and I'm pretty sure Irwin had a couple Norris votes. So I think you're good.

I thought the Michalek-Marleau-Bernier line was going to be a force for many years.

I thought the 'win now' mode was always the right thing to do with deadline deals etc, even though others were suggesting caution.

It's why I'm much more open now to a 'rebuild' of some sort.

Same here.

I loved the Guerin trade

I used to believe in Joe Thornton despite my dad (who lives near Boston) telling me all along that I was mistaken.

I find it hilarious that a lot of Bruins fans are against Thornton. It was a bad trade but let it go

Most of my interactions with Bruins fans hasn't necessarily been that they're against Thornton. Just that they don't think he has it in him to lead the way one may feel is needed to win the Cup. I don't disagree with them but I understand those that do. It's a complicated issue that is often oversimplified.

I think that is an accurate assessment of how most Bruins fans feel. The Bruins fans that I talk to (not on HF) seem to believe that if they still had Thornton they wouldn't have signed Chara and they would not have won in 2011. I think that is not necessarily true. Things would have been very different if that trade never happened. I do believe Thornton is capable of leading this team to the cup but most people seem to forget that this team is trying to win the hardest trophy to win in sports.

The only way the Chara thing would've been true is if his demand to be the captain of the team were accurate and I don't remember that ever being confirmed. That aside, the only person that wouldn't have been signed for Boston if Thornton was still there would have been Marc Savard, imo. I think they would've won when they did with Thornton, Chara, and Thomas but we'll never know obviously.

Ooh I got it. If Thornton stayed, they would've never been reverse swept by Philadelphia which would've never put the fire in their belly to win the Cup the next season. Bam Thornton choke confirmed.
