This season has been brutal, the good news is that we have a ton of cap space for next year, a possible new owner this summer, and likely a new management staff. Not that I expect us to land any UFA's, and if the new owner is actually a group of owners, I fear we will be more like the leafs who from what I understand have too much input or say from the board, which creates problems.

I don't like where things are going for us, aside from young talent of Price (21), Pacioretty (20) and Subban (19) plus several other decent prospects.
I hope Gainey stays, but it definitely seems like the table is set for his potential departure more than ever before. This would be a disaster, one that the boo-birds and coin-tossers won't see until it's too late. I guess the timing of his departure would also be very key: will he leave before or after UFA day, and will he head up the hometown UFA resigning effort?
