Any additional signings are just a bonus. The return of Markov instantly makes Gomez better - it's true, check the stats. Automatically our PP and PK will be better with him in the lineup. Markov and Subban manning the points will be deadly. Unless Price falls apart, there's no reason to think we won't be much improved next season.

If Chara didn't take out Max, I honestly thought we had a shot this year. But next season is an even better chance - salary cap goes up, no one needs a big raise, Price and Subban and Eller are all still on cheap deals and MaxPac won't be making too much either.

We're better than Boston right now. Their team will get worse before next season, ours will get better.
