Seeing as how we finished number 1 or 2 in goalscoring this year, why the **** do we need to add another superstar forward? Homerun? A homerun for me would be if Bob can sign/trade for a legitimate shutdown center/winger this summer. Otherwise, I'm comfortable with the team we've got, minus the fact that they still need to gain some more experience.
Yes, our whole team minus Koivu folded like cheap tents in the Philie series (can't score/can't limit turnovers/can't play defence/can't make saves), but I remain confident that this is all just a learning process. Next year they will be better, and the year after as well. Bob just needs to get his RFAs signed (and Komi UFA), and we're set.
On a side note, the way our PP went from best to worst in the playoffs remains a mystery to me. I hope Carbo + Staff will have learned from this year's playoffs and will be better at making adjustments in the future.
