from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,
You realize what this is, right? You see what’s going on, don’t you?
While you freak out about whether Peter Regin should stay in the lineup when Andrew Shaw returns, while you agonize about whether Brandon Bollig or Jeremy Morin is the best fit for the fourth line, while you rend garments over a bad power play here or a lousy turnover there, just pause for a moment. Take a step back. Breathe. And realize what you’re freaking out about.
Not about untelevised games. Not about penny-pinching owners putting a minor-league team on the ice. Not about incompetent coaches, player discord, empty buildings or an indifferent city.
No, you’re stressing about which highly competent player is going to be on the highly effective fourth line of the highly visible defending Stanley Cup champions in a highly rated Western Conference final in which the Blackhawks have home-ice advantage. These aren’t first-world problems, people. These are 1-percenter problems. You are the 1 percent right now. You have it better than anybody. You have it better than any hockey fan in Chicago has had it. And you probably have it better than any hockey fan in Chicago will have it.
You are in the Golden Age.
