At least Stalock will own up to his mistakes.
I'm not done with the team, but I’m not expecting a St Louis Miracle from this group, either. I don’t believe in the “Just get in the Playoffs and anything can happen”. That’s like saying you have a 50-50 chance of winning the lottery: either you’ll win or you won’t.
I found it interesting Boudreau is playing that GEEK line a lot more, and in more critical situations. Also found it interesting 9, 11 and 20 weren’t even in the OT co
Last years Blues were built to make a run at the Cup. But as we all know Mike Yeo couldn’t coach his way out of a paper bag and Jake Allen looked like the second coming of Dan Cloutier. Replace Yeo with a guy who actually has two gray cells to rub together and change the goalie out for some guy that had been playing in the Blues system for four years and suddenly they start playing like they should have all along. They didn’t squeak into the playoffs. They kicked in the door and set it on fire.
I’m not saying that 2008 team would have gone all the way. I’m just saying I think that was probably the most talented line up the Wild had. Guys in their prime complemented with some good veterans. And having a coach like Lemaire would have given them a distinct edge in the Playoffs.
That 2008 team would’ve skated circles around the current team...
