severe doubts of this teams ability to play in the playoffs
. It makes for decent regular seasons but they are absolutely outclassed in games like these.
thats not a suprise to me. this years team isnt significantly different from last years. until the defense improves greatly, i cant see it getting better. there are a lot of defensive prospects but by the time they mature will the offense still be above average?
trading for lecavalier would be popular but it would really hurt the franchise long term. the off season will be interestiing this year with all the free agents.
i am less scared about this now though cause of the rookies that are producing. maybe gainey can spend the big money that will be saved on the big defenseman (along with signing komisarek) but if he goes after offense to replace kovalev then the team will be similar next year again.
