Tonight blew. It sucked. It really did. I feel awful--like I said in the GDT, worse that last year, if that can be believed. But holy cow, if I were to adopt the mindset that some here have, I'd have packed it in....

1989 (our first real taste of something special, and we had our hearts ripped out in an upset by the Flyers)
1993 (yeah, we know)
1994 (huge upset Caps over Pens, the only time they beat us in the POs. Horrible.)
1995 (upset by Devils in 2nd rd--team couldn't score then when they needed to)
1996 (yeah, we know)
1998 (huge upset by MTL in the 1st rd. We didn't have Mario, but it still was a joke.)

You missed the Eddie Westfall goal in game 7 against the Islanders in '75.

I can only imagine how brutal that was. I was just a kid and only knew maybe 3 players then, so my innocence spared me the emotional devastation. :)

They really do need a mature leader. Not the most popular (this isn't high school) mind you. Doesn't have to be the highest paid.
Nor the player with the best stats. Nor the one who feels the most entitled. A leader. Yeah. That may be a good place to start.
