The Chicoutimi Cucumber Posted November 21, 2019 Share Posted November 21, 2019 Let's stay calm, please. Yes, the team needs Domi in particular to start producing. Yes, the loss of Drouin is unfortunate. But lots of teams are streaking - either in the right direction (Islanders, Dallas) or the wrong direction (Leafs, Flames, Canucks) right now. I think part of what happens is teams ride a burst of early season energy and it starts to peter out right about now. Am I irked at the complete indolence of a GM who seems to think that sitting around with his thumb up his butt-hole is an acceptable strategy for the next three years, on the magical assumption that a bunch of good-not-great prospects are suddenly going to win the Stanley Cup around 2023? 100%. But right now they're a bubble team and are still above the playoff bar. The team just needs to bear down, trust the coaches, the system, the depth, and each other, and ride out this little slump.
