It’s the off-season. Fans are excited. Anything can happen. The possibilities are endless. And then the GM of your favourite team trades a 2nd round pick for a guy who makes $3M and will play 4th line minutes and you’re left wondering why you were ever hopeful.
The off-season is great because fans can speculate on what will happen and the discourse can be pretty fun. It’s been an interesting few months in the Ottawa Senators sphere because not only are we hoping for something to happen, it seems like everyone is expecting it to happen.
