With a limited budget, that personnel style is not going to change too much...therefore, if we see a more concerted effort on the part of the players (trust me, it's preached repeatedly everyday at practice) to "shoot to create" instead of forcing a pass through the defense or simply putting one straight into the goalie's chest...then things will look up.

Far too often after his final recall Wilson attempted to force passes to veterans (Arnott and Erat) instead of shooting when he had the best scoring opportunity. After a summer of watching tape and maturing, I hope he'll feel more established and realize that he has as much right to shoot the puck as anyone and subsequently we see a much bigger contribution from him regardless of what line he plays on...
Once again, SLake hits it square on the head.
