And what about incurable pessimists?

They're in the tank for McDavid group.

This defense and this goalie isn't going to get us anywhere in the playoffs provided we even make it in. Sorry but you'd have to be an incurable optimist to believe otherwise.

Its not like the guy scheduled a two week vacation to the moon and skipped free agency the last few years.  There's plenty of info that suggests he kicked a ton of tires, made several intriguing offers, and in most cases those players chose not to come here for various reasons.  He's not soley to blame for our recent downturn.  You don't lose people like Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Osgood and replace them all right away...in some cases you may never be able to replace talent like that.

But do you lose players like Lidström, Rafalski and Stuart over several years and still do absolutely nothing to bolster the defense?

 

We should thank our lucky stars that hometown DeKeyser fell into Holland's lap or our defense would be an absolute s***fest.

You're right....being a GM is as easy as NHL 14 makes it out to be, what was I thinking?

It's real easy if you choose to do absolutely nothing.

 

Being an active GM on the other hand is incredibly hard.

Four more years of no Stanley Cup! Whoo hoo!

That was pretty much a given anyway.

 

 

How could you not do a better or at least comparable job? he never does anything at all.
