-Sophomore Slumps
-Still weak on D
-Faceoff and PK needs probably won't be addressed unless we sign Laich or something
-1st overall won't make an impact, will play in juniors.
I think toughness and faceoffs/pk are things that can be addressed, how pessimistic you are about that happening is up to you and I'm not going to try to change your opinion on management. I also think RNH will have a pretty substantial impact, but again I'm not going to be able to change your mind about that.
