I guess I should've looked at the whole board before I responded to a post about Merrill below. Well, like you said no surprise.

If I had been him, for most of the year I would have been thinking to myself, "Geez, this sucks, I'm stuck here on this awful team losing night after night no matter how well I play personally, and next year it isn't likely to be much better . . . ." Fortunately, the last 7 weeks provided reason to be optimistic about next season, if he is so inclined.

because I always had the same thoughts about him. I figured he was thinking this sucks loosing all the time, I should've just gone to the N|HL and gotten paid to play. I figured he would be gone no matter what, but like you point out the season ended well and could give him reason to say, hell maybe I'll come back and see if I can win an NC at the college level before I move on.
