Some things are worth fighting for, some feelings never die. Jean-Pierre Allard isn't asking for another chance for the Ottawa Senators, he just wants to know whyyyyyyy .... there's no easy way out, there's no shortcut to the Stanley Cup.
Reading about how Jeremy Roenick played Game 7 hero once again on Monday only served to remind me of my reaction last September when Sharks GM Doug Wilson took a flyer on the former Flyer.
Of course, I couldn’t resist revisiting my epitaph on MVN.com a few days later in which I alluded to Ray Emery continuing to be a huge bummer should Martin Gerber steal his job.
Which only made me curious as to why I would even bother sending a riposte to venerable Red Fisher when he came to the defence of then-Senators GM John Muckler in June 2007 after he was canned by Eugene Melnyk.
Even before the Senators hit the ice in September 2007 and eventually proved everybody wrong, old gal Edna was warning us all that a hard rain was gonna fall in Ottawa this season.
No one was listening.
Just like hardly any one from the Senators' players, coaches and brass are likely still watching the playoffs right now. Pity, for they could take notes on how to come up with a winning recipe for the next real season.
