    This is the first time since that 2014 GF loss that I have been excited about our future.

    There must be some credence in this theory, it is crazy how many juniors across all clubs (including other sports) who get injured just before they're due to debut. Im assuming its only natural that when they realize they're so close to making it, they take it to that next level in training...
