He said Miller could go down as the worst acquisition in Blues history.
I guess he's only been a Blues fan since 2005. Brewer/Pronger trade still makes me sick.
There are a number of moves that have proven to be horrible. I could list a half dozen right now that the Miller trade couldn't touch, even if we lose in the first round.
But the fact that dude is suggesting getting Miller could be the worst one, is insane...mainly because Miller COULD end up being the BEST ACQUISITION EVER if things fall our way and we happen to win the cup.
It's the "sky is falling" mentality...the drastic bi-polar meter crap that I hate about social media and sports. This team was the toast of the town a week and a half ago...and they go through a rough patch of 4 games (which they hadn't done all season...not even close), and now this team is apparently terrible and won't do anything in the playoffs.
I'm not too concerned with the team's play. Sure, it would be nice to be playing better...but wake me when the playoffs start. Honestly, I am far more concerned with the injuries right now. If we end up getting Oshie & Backes back for the playoffs and the are good to go, then I'll feel better. And of course it would be nice to still be alive in the playoffs when Tank is ready to go.
Nobody knows how this team is going to fair in the playoffs. Hopefully it's just a matter of the urgency simply not being there and when it's playoffs time, the energy will be there...even though the team showed a lot last night...except for Miller of course.
Someone else pointed out that Boston went 2-8 down the stretch last year...and then won the cup. It doesn't matter how you finish the season, it matters how you play in the playoffs.
It just sucks we just had two of our top guys injured in the past couple games this close to the playoffs.
