Oh I agree with that. I am more than willing to give Ramsey and Co. time to iron everything out. Getting the Top 9 ironed out during the first 2 weeks with that road trip (which I think will help more than hurt due to bonding and time spent practicing instead of at home) I think is huge.

No I agree, losing a lot of pieces with their Cap situation meant replacements were going to be rookies or cheap pieces. Buttttttttttttttttttttttttt, at the same time, if Buff doesn't turn in a solid year. Our return for a young Top 6 wing, and 1st round pick (forget the rest) will have been a 4th line wing, questionable prospect, a second pairing defenseman, and a one year bottom pairing defenseman. With that said I will give this a full season before I make my final judgement.
