This team could easily be a cup contender not only this year, but the next few if a few shrewd moves are made. I think if Darcy can relieve us of one or two of the longer contracts and get an impact player here somehow, someway. Having a #1 D-Man on a rookie contract is a great opportunity to make a run with that extra money that will eventually be allocated for his contract. I'd love to rid ourselves of Pominville and Connolly's (and Hecht's) contracts and get some better talent. This team would easily be a top team in the league with some sort of top line talent.
This has been said before, and I have no qualms repeating it.
BUFFALO IS ALREADY A TOP TEAM IN THE LEAGUE AND A CUP CONTENDER
Could some moves be made to make us better? Sure, but let's not kid ourselves. This team is very, very good. And they win games by playing great team defense, which is better fit for the playoffs than a lot of flash.
