In response to Bookboy007's comment:
Sheer point of fact is that 29 teams fail every year and one succeeds. If you play the knowitall and claim you know the Bruins will lose because of some move you don't like, the odds are 29-1 in your favour that you'll be right about the failure and claim you were right about the reason.
if the Bruins don't win the cup this year, Marco will blame Loui and shupe will blame Rask's contract, and Rusty will blame Jacobs, and Stanley will blame Thornton and pauly will blame NAS. And there will be no way to prove any damn one of them is right or that the options they prefer would have made a difference, but fantasy is a powerful drug, so....
I have no issue with Eriksson's game because I think he'll get rewarded for the way he plays over the long haul. Declaring he must produce now for whatever stupid reason is foolish. He doesn't have to do anything for you or to make you happy. He keeps playing the way he is, he'll make the team happy, and then you can mope about that.
It's not what he does that bothers me - it's the way he does it. I'm not sure I've seen anyone play more vanilla than this guy. That's a deal breaker for me.
I was excited to get him...boy was I wrong.
I'd say Loui is one big issue, the other is ...
Mcquaid - Ference - Seidenberg
Hamilton - Krug - Bartkowski
Do the math
Deal breaker for me too. His pass to set up Campbell's SHG was excellent, but that's it. And I would not put him on Bergie's line - he simply has to earn it first, and he doesn't play like he wants to earn anything. Whatever he had done while playing in Dallas should not make a difference.
