Signs Your Team Is Digging A Hole
*You're beginning to regret the free agent signing you made in the summer and it's game 1 of 82 in year 1 of 15.
*You're 1 of 30 teams that would trade one of your players (goaltender) for the player mentioned above.
*Fans have noticed that the team sucks, and you're in Florida.
*Your team couldn't score a goal if the other team played without a goaltender, or worse, they started Vesa Toskala.
*You acquire a top player for a draft pick and four weeks later another team acquires the same player for free via waivers....wait wrong league.
*That goalie who carried you into the playoffs and almost carried his country to a Gold Medal, yeah he called, he's taking this season off.
*Your GM had to make a public plea to stop booing the captain which he heard briefly from his suite, when really all that happened was that someone in the lower bowl coughed.
*Darryl Sutter is still your team's GM.
*One of your fans was attacked by an opposing player, but when offered free tickets to another game, the fan declined.
*Your team's bus has a special ramp for the players to walk up because the stairs are too high.
*Your goalie might be out for a month with serving a DUI sentence.
*The bad news is, your starting goaltender is expected to make a quick recovery.
*The league's commissioner wouldn't be able to pass a baseline test, let alone your star player recovering from a concussion.
*When defending his claim as the world's best goaltender, your goaltender defends himself by pulling out his goaltending awards...wait...they seem to be missing.
*Your team's 0-7-1 start will be delayed by just a couple of weeks this year.
