5Something to Prove

Everything that’s come out of camp has a nice ring to it about players feeling unfulfilled last year.  There seems to be a hunger around this team like something is unfinished. Many players mentioned that they sat at home during the Stanley Cup playoffs after losing to Chicago, thinking, this could have been us.

David Poile came right out and said that he is ready to go all in on this season.  That points to possible trades to fill in needs and a whatever-it-takes attitude.  There is that sort of feel that the team isn’t happy to just get to the playoffs.  It is time to make the next step and anything less will feel like a failure.

Those types of thoughts and words aren’t something that Smashville is used to.  We have a team that has a chance to be one of the best in the league.  It should be a fun season.
