I figure this is relevant to us because it involves The Captain.
With a hint of bias, this really is ridiculous. He wants out for no other reason than because Stevie didn't pick him to play on his team (originally). Seems pretty unprofessional to me. This must be why Stevie stepped down: too many cry babies whining about not being picked.
They can kick Boston's ass out of the building and win 2 out of 3 against them, but they lose 2 straight to a team who doesn't beat anyone, they get manhandled by a bad Ottawa team at home, all the issues with Columbus and Calgary last year, etc.
We were riding high after winning 5 of 6 (and should have beat Philly) until we ran into Tomas Kopecky and the big bad Florida Panthers.
Valuable points being flushed down the toilet.
***The Red Wing teams that competed for Cups in 2000s would take the bad Central Division teams behind the woodshed.
