Historical analogies are always goofy, but I'm as eager to make them as the next sucka MC.
The recent news out of Thrashers HQ gives me the queasy feeling that our 10-11 team is not unlike the 08-09 Florida Panthers. You know, the Panthers back when they had a stellar defense (Bouwmeester, Boynton, Ballard, McCabe, etc.) and hotttTtTtTt young forwards like David Booth (31 goals that year), Stephen Weiss, Nathan Horton, and impressive rookie Michael Frolik. We just don't have a Vokoun equivalent.
Anyway. Enjoy your weekend, childrens! We trust it will be full of college football and patriotic sadness.
