The bottom line is that this team isn't ready to compete for the cup. We need to get our cap situation under control and we need to allow our young guys to mature more. Only then should we be looking to free agency to add whatever pieces we are missing.
I agree about the young guys "hopfully" improving... you'd also have to say that a few WILL regress. Rozi, Redden aren't gonna get much better... I have my doubts about Vinnie recovering from knee surgery at 35... and Drury will be more of the same IF we're lucky.
I'm not saying it's not the way to go... I just doubt the games will be much fun to watch this coming season. I just don't see where the goals are coming from. Unless MZA astounds us... which would be fantastic... but I'm not counting on it.
