This team cannot be considered a serious contender at this point. Not enough firepower up front (not to mention a lack of overall physicality), and the defense is being exposed to injury. The losses of Markov and Gorges have forced Spacek, Hammer, Gill, et. al to play too many minutes.

Early playoff exit unless 2 big moves are made:
Top 4 defensive-defenseman who can set a physical tone
Top 6 forward with size willing to play in the tough areas with a scoring touch

The farm is stocked. Time to move some youth to address deficiencies. Otherwise we finish 6th-9th, and bow out in Round 1.
