nothing more to say, its over. rebuild? That is a four to five year proposition.
When the style went from skill to thug plus skill we weren't there. Hockey has eoloved (?) to a two threat deal. Skill and thugs. That is how it is. When we lost in game 7, that message was delivered. It was not acted upon. Now the fallout. Aging skill guys who are out hustled and out muscled and out skliled, and who have no gas in the third period tank. .
It will take some time to fix this, AV hit the curve right, he was just one season out, but now well, it will take soooo long.
Torts had an over inflated ego, a pink slip and a rep. Not good enuf.
Doesn't mean I'm gonna quit, does mean I look into the mirror tho' (hold the juvenile comments please)
