Now I don't want to get off on a rant here, but how many times do we have to hear this nonsense? It's becoming a smidge embarassing. Is it me or is Eugene Melnyk starting to act a lot more like Dan Gilbert. It's become like the movie Groundhog Day, where the same thing happens everyday. Book it, each year when we start to struggle, Euge comes in and says we already have the team to compete for a cup, despite everyone else seeing that we clearly don't.
Perhaps it's this kind of backwards thinking that has left us with a core of aging veterans, instead of young talent poised to compete year after year. If that wasn't enough to sound somewhat crazy, in a pre-game interview on HNIC, Melnyk proceeded to tell Elliotte Friedman to " buckle up, we're going all the way this year, and I mean it ".
Yep, we're clearly winning the cup this year, despite no one, and I'm including Sens fans in this, thinking we have a team to get anywhere near Lord Stanley. We have a middle of the pack team, that can get hot and maybe win a round or two, but that's it, and that is if we play to our potential and get on one of our patented hot streaks.
I've always liked confident people, and in sports especially it's important to be confident, but this isn't being confident, it's being foolish. Just another day in the lifeand times of a Sens fan I suppose. Sadly, over the last few years, we've become accustomed to the crazyness that seems to happen way more than it should. So much so, that it it almost seems normal, only it's not. Of course, I could be wrong.
