Agreed, it'd be cool to make the playoffs but getting another top 3 pick really is the best thing for this team in the long run. An elite offensive prospect or Larsson added to what we already have in the system would set this team up for many good years to come.

When you look at our roster, our goaltending is great, our defense is OK but not good, our offense looks deep even if not containing much starpower. At first glance it looks like a team that could actually surprise and give the playoff teams a run for their money. However, one or two injuries up front would change that significantly. This team needs to stay almost injury free to make the playoffs, and the chances of that happening are slim to none. I'm not worried about it, I'm confident we'll get a lottery pick or somewhere around there. I just hope it's a top 3 pick.
