There are many out there that would help us, it wouldn't take THAT much of an upgrade to improve on what we have. Like I said, Babchuk's shot would have helped for sure, but this is a guy who was also benched in the playoffs. They have to have a reason or two to have not gone after him. Perhaps they are waiting for potential waiver pickups or have a few irons in the fire?

I know the staff has worked tirelessly to alter our pp setup, and with Brassard on the point, let's see where it goes before we start drawing conclusions based on a few pre-season games.

Do we need someone to help us? I have been saying that all along, but I am not ready to cry fail yet.
