"We want to go out strong," center Derick Brassard said. "We owe that to ourselves and we owe it to our fans who have been supporting us."

I hope he means that and I hope they pay off the debt better than in the past. There are plenty of fans that are just about through with the promises & exhortations to be patient.

Reed, you're still espousing hope, but it's hopeLESS. No way this team doesn't mail in the last 10 games.

And the fans have already made up their minds on this season. 10 straight wins and missed playoffs won't change that.

So glad I didn't waste my time and $$ on this team at Nationwide or at home punchingthe couch.

It's tough enough to follow the CBJ (hoping for a team to show up) thru you three's excuse-laden, hold no one accountable writings.

Good article, some of the best and never seen before aspects of the CBJ in their body of work over ten seasons (excellent road record and excellent prospects) where not enough.

It was not enough because the basic elements of the team have failed: Umberger, Vermette, Voracek, Nash and Mason doomed this season in March.
