Yep!!! I noticed this back in 2010-2011 and it pissed me off then and pisses me off now. Didn't see much of that the past two seasons but I'm seeing it again now, and it enrages me to no end. Best example of it was Vancouver's OT winner with Salvador hanging out passively enjoying the view with Santorelli screening Schneider.
Last season too. It's the thing that i just dont understand - it's Sal's MO. I think of it as puck chasing. It was going on before Stevens came on board. I thought he'd put a stop to it but he seems to not be really doing anything.
I just dont understand the inaction. It IS broke - it needs fixing. The little things aren't actually there -- it's an illusion!!
I honestly feel like the more we rant and rail, the more they stick to their sh!tty mindset. Seriously, I feel like they're being spiteful. Nnno, we're NOT going to take shots, Nnno this IS zone coverage. Nno it ISN'T about winning. Nno we DON'T need energy.
That whole taking things personally was swell when they were proving the league wrong but now they've decided it's much more fun to prove the fans wrong. Nno our system DOESN'T work. Nno we are NOT fiscally responsible. Nnno we will not be pigeon holed into what you think we should be -- maybe we ARE Mickey Mouse and LIKE IT! So haaaa!
DAGNABITALL -- seriously -- I found this and saved it because it IS me watching these fvckers. I mean I have to just stop already - it's insulting no matter how stupid it sounds to those of you emotionally uninvolved.
Fine, you've proven me wrong. YOU DO SUCK! You do NOT play the ineffable system. You ENJOY LOSING -- WE GET IT NOW.
