One of the things I was looking forward to when Lou was finally done was getting a GM that actually said things when questioned. This is great to see.
The fact that he even acknowledged the idea of having an exciting team (when mentioning Ottawa) probably had Lou grinding his teeth.
Also, I do like the fast attack support mantra they are using. Sounds better than status quo.
Lou is gone now. Which means my endless rambling and bashing of his decisions is gone too. We're still gonna have to live with the consequences of his actions for quite awhile but i'm gonna try to avoid going back at it. We turned the page and look forward now.
But with Shero wanting to build a FAST, EXCITING team. Ready to take the time to build a good team and no rush everything with patching work. Letting vets walk to give a chance to younger guys. Saying all the right things (and actually answering questions). Seeing Zacha been introduced and mixed with the fans/medias right away makes it look like the management wants to give more to the fans. (hopefully now training camps will be open to public like any other damn team in the league).
i'd like to see him up but whats the point? we won't be competitive for a few more years. Why not keep on for cheap for 1 or 2 extra year? It could be a big difference with our cap when it's time to re-sign him depending on who we have now
But i just had a funny.. i dunno.. not gonna call it " vision " but whatever...
What if... this guy ! This alexandre Goulet (that sound funny in french btw) .. turn to be one of the more amazing devils story of all time.. coming from nowhere to be the one that lead us to many cups etc etc...
And the first time i hear about you was with a " this guy... "
How dare you call our next franchise player like that ? How ?
Yeah ok.. let's not call this a vision.
at some point... Calgary Flames had that moment... "who's that Martin St-Louis guy who got invited to camp? I know nothing about him"
and then saw him go and become a franchise guy / winning a cup somewhere else cause they gave up on him.
