What a long, strange trip it has been

5

Was updating the Wikipedia article for this season as I am wont to do, and I realized that hadn't realized just how amazingly bizarre this season has been. Fleury's exhibition heroics seem so long ago. Remember the H1N1 scandal? Yeah, me neither. THIRTEEN trades this season. We made only fourteen in the previous three seasons combined. Half our roster was not here a month ago. Chemistry is overrated, right? If you told me on October 1 that we would be battling the Red Wings for playoff position, I would have been estatic. Who would've guessed?

Rule 99 lives again
