Look up the roster in 92 and 93 and 2002. Those are the reasons I cannot fall in love with the players we have. It just isn't the same. There was some emotional players on those teams, the Clarks, Gilmours, Tuckers, Roberts'... I bet if you ask 10 different people who our emotional leader is you might get 10 different answers.. Lupul? Grabovski? ...Gunnarsson?
Different era though too.
I think the game of hockey has lost a bit of the emotion it once had. The scorers score, the checkers check, the fighters fight.
We have less guys in the game who do a little bit of all those things----which I think you are saying you miss.
I find them hard to follow because they're so FAST and AMAZING my eyes can't keep up!
GO LEAFS GO
I have to bust you because you are coming off as someone who is deliberately trying to be overly positive just to keep the wolves at bay!
Don't be a negative doom-and-gloomer!
Nervously optimistic for me.......Have started watching the standings but cant get that "18 wheeler over the cliff thing" out of my mind...
