Think about it
Thing is, IF everything goes right there's still 3-4 teams that I can confidently say are better than we are. (WSH, PIT, PHI, NJD w/ Kovy)
However, it's much more likely that we hit a bump in the road and finish in 7-10th once again.
We have 4 clear problems IMO that prevent us from being contenders:
1. We need a big, physical, goalscoring winger to complete our top 6 and improve our 5-on-5 scoring.
2. We lack the scoring depth to compensate for our lack of true first line players outside of Cammy.
3. Our defense is fairly slow.
4. Price has not yet shown the consistency needed to earn the 60ish starts he will likely receive this season.
#4 IMO will likely straighten itself out, but the other three need to be addressed. IMO you can fix #1 and #2 in one move (acquire the winger and bump Pouliot down to the third line).
