What say you about YOUR team?

At least you're looking for a new coach.

We lost the 4th highest point getter last year and one of the league's top face-off men (Jason Spezza - out for year)
We lost the teams first leading scorer and one of the league's top goal scorers last year (Milan Michalek - should be back soon)
We lost last year's Norris Trophy winner and our best defenseman (Erik Karlsson - out for year)
We lost arguably our number 2 defense man (Jared Cowan - out for year)
We lost the league's arguable best goaltender so far this year (Graig Anderson - should be back soon)
In the most recent game we played, we had 10 (TEN!) call-ups from the AHL. Yet we're still finding a way to win.
Oh, and a big Congrats to Chicago!

And never won a Cup due to his ability to let in the winning goal in the last minute of the 3rd.
