Well, that sucked.
I don't even know what to make of this year. If you would have told me in October, we'd end the year getting swept in the second round, I'd have been super disappointed.
But then this happened....
Well, it looks like the goaltending is doing everything it can to torpedo my favorite team.
...Wondering how much worse it will get before they get back on track... at this point, we may have already dug ourselves a hole so big that we won't be able to get out.
And man, did it get worse from that point. Yeo rants, getting whipped 7-1 a couple times, Ugh. The way we bottomed out in mid-January, it was a small miracle to even make the playoffs, let alone beat St. Louis and make it to the second round. So in that sense, ending where we did is pretty amazing.
I guess I end the year bittersweet. Happy to have made it as far as we did, happy to have had an amazing 3+ month run with #Duuuuubs, happy to matter at the end. Happy. But...
Sad that the year is over too soon once again at the hands of the frakking Blackhawks. Sad that we sputtered out these last four games. Sad that our core (minus Parise - he never quits) let us down. Sad that we never sucked so bad we got to draft a Toews/Kane. Sad.
2014-2015 Wild. Bittersweet.
