But we had such a good thing going on in our race to be
champions contenders playoff qualifiersnot traded out of the locker room.
We could not risk upsetting that chemistry.
Yeah, there are quite a few things that, imo, BM booted last season. This is one of them. I liked what I saw out of Holland in his very brief stint. When the season was in the tank in November/December, I would liked to have seen 15 or so games with him playing on the second line with Ryan on his wing.
I think the misconception early was that the young guys (DSP, Palmieri, Gordon, MacMillan) were the players that were keeping the Ducks from success. Not so.
It was Hiller, Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan, Visnovsky, Fowler, Lydman. You know, the guys you are counting on.
