Around the NHL: 2015-2016

Recommended Posts

Like fans are obliged to stay committed to their expectations. Set them in stone.

 

To what end? So Team Storm Cloud leaders can smile in self-satisfaction at all the emo-carnage when things don't go as expected?

 

I don't hold myself out as a pundit or prognosticator. I'm a fan. I want to have fun watching the team. I will set my expectations accordingly. 

That's all fine. And dandy. The problem is denying the previous expectations.

Well, that can be annoying, I guess.

 

My advice to everyone: Feel free to proceed more or less as follows:

 

Training Camp: WOO-HOO! GM TM is a GOD. I can't believe he managed to swing the deal(s) for ____________ and also bring in ___________. WE'RE GONNA WIN THAT CUP. WE'RE GONNA WIN THE STANLEY CUP. ME AND THE BUFFALO SABRES, YEAH YEAH YEAH.

 

20 Games in: Mmmaaannn. They should be better than this. Oh, well. At least _________ are looking terrific.

 

40 Games in: BOOM. I KNEW it. I KNEW they had a ______ winning streak in them! PLAYOFFS OR BUST, BABY!

 

60 Games in: Well, they are what they are at this point. A playoff bubble team. Tellin' ya: They really started taking on water after the injury/-ies to _______________ .

 

80 Games in: You know what? Whatever. This was a fun season. The most fun I've had watching the Sabres in a decade. The team is headed in the right direction. They don't control their own destiny, sure. But they could still sneak in with a wildcard so long as ____________ loses tonight and then its last two games after that. GO SABRES!

The Pittsburgh Penguins and hot dog loving Phil Kessel are your Stanley Cup Champions.
