until we can free up that cap room and address the issues properly I don't see us getting past the second round of the playoffs (i don't even see this team making the playoffs) so that would be stuck in neutral.

In fact last year we won one less game in the playoffs, so technically we took a step back. Sometimes you need to take a step back to go forward, but in the case of this team's makeup and contract situations. I think we might just start to go into reverse.
