Re: the reign of Hydra:
That was some of the most painful hockey I've every witnessed. Listen, I get the team is going to be bad the next two-three years and maybe even longer. I can accept the team is pretty much trying to gather young, offensive talent pretty much from scratch. I mean, they pretty much have three forwards U25 worth a damn (Henrique, Palmieri and Zacha with the latter two being question marks). However, the way the team was playing January-April was inexcusable and outright disgusting. Playing a lifeless, passive, defensive system with no transition game trying to eek out 2-1 victories in pointless games. Like I said, no matter what I'll watch every game and attend the usual 5-7 games, but Im so glad the team is getting rid of the dead weight in management like Oates, Stevens, downsizing Lou's role and players like Fraser, Bernier, Gomez, Harrold. Then after this year Ruutu and Zubrus. This literally is starting from scratch and so far, every move has been logical.
