White learned how to be a valuable, physical player without fighting. I know they play different positions, but IMO it's a valid comparison. Clowe will still be able to play physical and contribute without dropping the gloves. The real question us will eliminating/cutting back on fighting be enough to prolong his career anywhere near the end of the contract.

Don't buy that Stevens is a prima Donna. He didn't whine to Chere, Chere asked other players. Since everyone played what we can now assume is DeBo's system, doesn't sound like Stevens created a locker room divide. Stevens seems to have left for valid reasons, both professional and personal. Since Albelin was waiting in the wings, this didn't have a negative effect on anything, even if the timing wasn't perfect.

I never loved him when he was here. He always seemed a little indifferent/lazy. Obviously can't prove it, but something about him rubbed me the wrong way. I didn't really embrace him enough to get hurt when he took the money, so I'll continue to kinda not like him. May the best man win, but I'm hoping Josefson blows him away.

The epic imperial pumpkin porter is the best pumpkin beer I've ever has. Not sure if it'll make it this Far East, I had it in Utah, but if it does, get it.

By "missing production"  its not just about numbers (cause like i said, situations can throw off any numbers) it's about what they brought / how clutch they could be / what they can do in certain situations. You need a goal you look up to those guys, you expected those guys to be able to raise their game at the right time. They could do stuff that others couldnt do, or at least not on a regular basis lol
 
and to your point, a lot of things went our way that year that we went to the cup finals. Which again shows that you HAVE to bury your chances and make the big plays when you can. Gotta grab your opportunities. Again hard to deny that our guys that we have are missing of that other than Henrique and Jagr, even Elias has lost his touch. Some of his SO attempts were beyond sad.
 
anyways, this is going nowhere. Let's call it a day

It IS about numbers. Teams regress to the mean. 2012 was a good fluke. Losing Parise hurt, but that team was supposed to get worse and did. Last year was a bad fluke. We should get better this year. Throw in some good patches by Lou, and we have a good shot at the playoffs, which are a crapshoot in the east anyway.
