I'm most ticked off about blown leads. I'd rather have them get killed 7-0 then keep blowing leads and losing points they should of had. Until and IF and I mean IF they stop blowing leads this team will be frustrating to watch at times. There's also no trade that's gonna fix these blowing lead games.
So you'd rather the team truly be bad rather than a good team that is beating themselves? That makes sense.
See, I also view that as being over positive. You gotta face the facts and face reality. Being positive is not magically gonna change the season. I seriously doubt you see head coaches or players staying positive all the time and hopeing that's enough to turn the team around.
I am being realistic. This team is very good. There are few very good teams in the NHL. They're one of the elite. Despite significant injuries, an underperforming PP, and many blown leads, they have one of the best records in the NHL. The people that aren't being realistic are the ones that somehow think this team isn't that good or is very troubled or whatever.
Sometimes preparing for the worst is the best because you'll never be dissappointed.
The irony there is that I'm not the one that gets disappointed. I've been keeping the highs and lows of this season in perpsective. The people that seem to be down all the time are the doom and gloomers. An aside, but I hate that saying. Cynicism isn't a virtue.
