I know exactly what it means Sohel. Steelers went 12-4 in 3 of the last 4 seasons, with one SB victory and a loss in SB, and yet, the failures are considered a bust season. Sometimes, the expectations of these heralded teams are too much for players and coaches to live up to. I understand what Wings are going through. Its hard carrying the burden of great franchise names.

Giroux is a great player no doubt, though he plays for the Cryers. I hope Devils put an end to it on Tuesday. That was a dirty dirty hit by him on Zubrus.

What a story the Kings and Quick have become. A few months ago, they couldn't buy a goal, and almost didn't make the playoffs. Look at them now ! Sometimes a team that are in playoff mode a month before the playoffs have a huge advantage over teams that are in comfortably. How many Presidents trophy winners have actually won the whole thing in recent years? Not many.
