Here's hoping Roy and Sakic can have the level of success that Dorsey and Reid have had so far this year.
Yeah, pretty much.... I really thought there was a lot of promise two years ago. Still needed a big improvement on defense and goaltending if they were ever going to make some noise in the playoffs, but you could really see the potential. Then last year, partly due to all the injuries, there were times when it looked like they hadn't ever played hockey together... it was like watching the Missouri Mavericks.
