I still think the rags come up short in the end, I'm so far passed getting all bent over individual calls etc. Easier to get use to it they aren't falling apart any time soon going forward. Only hope is we get back to being competitive with them sooner rather than later. Without some serious help from the hockey gods that's not likely to happen for another year or three. To me that's what sucks the most not what other teams are doing. We had it good for years (way back when) and now we're in trouble.
I think it's much more exciting when both teams compete against each other at a high level rather than it being one-sided. Makes winning that much sweeter.
