What makes this worse is the fact that we battled back with a great attitude after we got off to a slow start this year. That's the part that hurts the most.

I am a big believer in these guys. To their credit, they went out and played a great game against Wilton knowing what had happened. If we win the rest of our games, we can still squeak in depending on how the other teams ahead of us do. I'm confident that we can get in.

When I played with and against Gretzky, I viewed him as a player who understood what he meant to the game and always put the game first. He was always concerned about his image, and I mean that in a good way. And Janet struck me as someone who also understood who he was and how important it was to him to have the proper image.
