Hitch was right at the end of the season. We have a lot of growing to do as a 'team' and what that growth is for each individual is different and varied. I disagree that we are an AHL team compared to these two (that's a knee jerk reaction) but we are a young team and have some things to learn during the upcoming season. Sometimes its amazing how quickly that can happen though through the course of a season or a playoff run. It is incredible to watch the playoffs unfold every year and the ups and downs each team faces, overcome or fall prey to during that time.
Fear not Blues fans. It will happen and I've got my entire pitcher of Kool-Aid ready for next year.
