Just wait for the first in-game injury. This forum is going to be something.
This forum is going to be 'something' regardless of what happens.
If Mantha plays 40 games and has 15 goals it won't be:
"Awesome, this kid's the real deal and our future is secure. Way to go Holland and staff for drafting this guy!!!!"
It will be: " f*** you Kenny for signing Cleary and Quincey and letting Hossa go and not giving me a team as tough as Calgary and for not signing Niskanen"
Some dudes on here have spent too much time building their opinions and reputations and dealing in absolutes. Whatever happens this year, people are going to feel the need to spin it whatever way they need to in order to back up their zealousness.
