Choose not having a single player in the top 30 points scorers.

Choose being shorthanded just 54 times so far, but having one of the worst penalty kill records in the league.

Choose destroying your 3 game winning streak and momentum by getting turned over at Toronto, the team bottom of the league for the majority of the season so far.

Choose hope.

Choose love.

Choose persistence.

Choose addiction.

Choose optimism.
