I hold this franchise in a high regard. I trust David Poile to make the right decisions within the parameters given. I think he has put together a great team with tons of potential. We don't have snipers yet, but we have two on the horizon (Glazachev and Shiskanov). It's not all coming together immediately and it takes a little longer for us because we can't go out and get a Savard, Sydor, Marchant and Co. Our biggest FA signing (at the time the signing was made) was Tom Fitzgerald. With that in mind, it's going to take a while to create what I want to see on the ice. We are close, very close, but we aren't there yet. We are a proven scorer away from being a playoff team. And we are one more really solid Dman (which may emerge from our current crop) away from giving St. Louis a run for the 2nd overall in the division [provided we nab that scorer as well].
That being said, the team is still not performing up to par. I don't care if they can't score. I won't blame the team if they play a physically dominant game and lose. I want effort. The past couple of games that I have seen, I haven't seen the effort I was hoping. Sometimes, the puck just doesn't go in the net. But if I don't see effort consistently, I'll start complaing. And with the Colorado game and the Chicago game fresh in my mind, I'm still in a whiny mood.
