Obviously, this season is drawing rapidly to a close...and that is, naturally, disappointing as the playoffs is the only time of year that matters IMO. There have been alot of positives to reflect on...
Beating the Rockettes is a mini-miracle anytime in the last few years as they have managed to have our number for whatever reason (Brown
Playing the Yams to 3 1 goal losses and a win in a season is just fantastic as they are considered to be an elite team in the WHL this year.
Owning Spokane is even better as that has definitely NOT been the way in the past.
In fact, for whatever inexplicable reason, we have been great against, debatetably, the strongest division in the league...the US. So good on this young team.
We have had the unique pleasure of watching the youngest batch of talented "babies" we have ever seen in PG develop and grow into a very cohesive, team focussed unit.
All we can do is wait until next year at this point. If the boys work hard over the summer I think it is fair to have an elevated level of expectation for next year. Minimum of 0.500 hockey and a solid playoff performance is not out of the realm of realism. It has been a long time since there has been a realistic expectancy that would apply to this organization...it will be interesting and exciting to go through it...again
Thanks for a unique look to the season Coogs...finish strong against the hated Bloozers and I'll be there chanting GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGS!!
