What "trap" did we fall into? The trap of not really having the money to sign someone really good?

I'm not worried about last year. Yeah, it was set-up to be a write-off of a season by Poile. But I don't think he had all that much choice after Rads bolted. He did what many here suggested. Let some of the grinders contracts play out, hope some of the young players you threw on the ice with them show promise, and try to be better in 2009. I'm glad he he didn't buy a two year rental stiff.

The low budget rebuilding is on track.

We don't have any choice with our budget but hope Wilson contributes real-soon-now, and that O'Reilly, Santorelli(s) or Hornqvist or some other prospect improves a lot.

We DO have a good young defense, by Poile design. Our true hope is that the offense can reach consistently average, and our defense can play like real beasts.

I'm not going to panic. I like the looks of our next few years.
