Seemed a little negative...I'd expect most "experts" would expect the CBJ to take a step forward. The CBJ had a slow start last year due to LeClaire being run over and broken in preseason and all of the new guys (Umberger/Tyutin/Commodore/Huselius/Voracek/Brassard) still feeling each other out. The CBJ are basically adding Brassard and Filatov without losing anything significant. Mason played 10-15 games with Mono, missed training camp last year due to surgery and played only 3 minor league pro games before being thrown into the CBJ crease. If he handled that last year, can't see how much more challenging this season could be.
Unless we get some major injury issues going on, I'd think not making the playoffs will be a huge fan let down.
