Thread: I dare you
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HatterTParty</b></div><div>Dude, seriously, that isn’t even close to the point at hand. I don’t need a cup, I don’t need for this team to win every single season. You’re right about the three cups, but screw being grateful. I get when you start to fizzle out and start your inevitable down period. However, the **** this team has done, from the crap moves, to the awful coach, to the lack of effort by every player, shows that the decline is more like a crash. Toews and Kane are still in their prime, while Keith and seabrook decided to jump off a cliff, especially after seabrook was handed the most undeserving contract in hockey.

It’s not about being grateful, it’s about the culture. I was fine missing the playoffs two years ago, I was last year (especially when they made a fight out of it), but then this **** in the offseason happened. Bowman grabs dach at third overall because he’s desperate, he trades for maatta who can’t skate, he trades for de haan who only has one shoulder, and then he trades jokiharju. I have no words for that last one anymore.

The culture of excellence and one goal has changed to a culture of losing. There’s no hard work, no logic in the moves made, and absolutely no direction. That’s disgraceful for a team that, as you pointed out, earned 3 cups in 6 years. So no, I won’t settle, as a fan, for them to be okay with losing. But what I think shouldn’t matter to you or the organization, since they’re just gonna keep being mediocre if they wanna be. It’s just shameful to watch how far they’ve fallen so quickly.

Also, to answer your other question, yes I did hate some moves they made during those six cups. We signed bickell to a contract he didn’t deserve. He traded nick leddy, who was an amazing puck moving dman. He Gave up a 1st round pick to get KIMMO TIMONEN!!! Nothing against the guy, but he barely played at all that playoffs.

I’m sorry if I came off as disrespectful, but needless to say I’m a little triggered tonight.</div></div>

Dude we have one cup and we trade forsberg for erat. Dumped a 1st and Sanford for Shatt. That first round pick ended up being Morgan frost. Go back in time we selected Eric fehr over GETZLAF. I mean every single team has made terrible moves but not every team wins 3 cups with a core. Without seabrook you might have 1 cup instead of 3. Yeah it sucks he has this deal but remember that he was a huge part of you winning. Honestly toews is grossly overpaid. Dude is worth at most 8 million but people tend to only focus on seabrook. Kane is worth every dollar. Either way it’s frustrating but understand it’s a process and not everything happens over night. At least bayou have something to show for it. Look at ranger fans or and Canadian team. Most people would trade 5 years or struggles w 3 cups. Maybe seabrook will get a skin infection who knows
