This comment at the Buffalo News article about the rest of the team needing to be like Vanek stopped me dead in my tracks:
Listen, exactly one year ago, would it have been plausible that the expectation for the 2011-2012 season would have been President’s trophy and Stanley Cup? Come on, really? Do you [...]
