This is a GOOD team. This is essentially the same team that finished 2nd overall last season. 1 Playoff series does not a failure make.
On the ice the team finished 2nd overall last season. I think you're putting way too much stock in a 4 game series.
As for next season. Most of those UFA's will return. Those that don't will be replaced, hopefully with even better players.
I agree with you that going with Price was a mistake. I think they sacrificed this season to give Price some experiance. On the upside, we'll get a much higher pick in the draft next season. Could we use it to trade for a stud 1st line forward maybe?
I agree that on paper we had a good team. However, that means nothing. Its what you do on the ice, and what this team did on the ice this season was mediocre. VERY mediocre.
