Not being an up front and die hard hockey fan. When I heard that Paddock had resigned as the Pats Head Coach. I figured this season was going to be a wash. Usually when a HC and GM resigns it’s because they know the team has run out of horses to contend with the big boys.
I was totally unaware that John Paddock had stayed on as the GM until I heard Rod say it on the Soirts Cage earlier in the week. Funny how all of a sudden, instantly like I’m doing a reverse thought process in my mind. Going from a depressing Doom and Gloom to a healthy step by step reload of the top gunners.
We all know how much of a difference one man can make things better.
Or, in the case of Canada and the USA; how much worse one man has made things.
The first week of December I’m thinking it’s going to take many years to get this team back to a level it was 2 seasons ago. Then with one sentence the whole outlook changed!
With John’s mind now totally focused on reloading the team. Not having to be behind the bench just about every night. The process will take far less time than it did when Paddock first appeared on the Scene.
I’m hoping the knowledgeable Pats fans can tell me I’m still mistaken and no where near what reality is. Or tell this football fan that his hockey thoughts are pretty close for someone with the hockey fan knowledge of a PeeWee fan.
Keep building John! Make the Pats the Stampeders of the DUB. (Took me half a year listening to the Cage as to what the heck the DUB was) Had stupid thoughts of things like A&W (dub) LOL
