I actually feel kind of bad for them also. They just can't catch a break. Just goes to show you how hard it is to win the Cup. Everything has to go right and staying healthy is a huge factor. I mean if they get knocked out of the first round because of injuries that would suck. Oh well, on the other side they probably wouldn't be feeling sorry for us.
I don't feel bad for them. (Well, maybe for some of them.)
I usually empathize with hockey fans everywhere, but I had the misfortune of living in St. Louis for several years. The core Blues fans are great, but they're a distinct minority. The vast majority are idiots, who couldn't care less if their team ever won a Cup. As long as the other team leaves the ice on stretchers, they're happy. No coincidence that, for as long as most of us can recall, the Blues never fail to goon it up like crybabies every time they fall behind. Just giving their "fans" what they want.
