Maybe reread the thread if you think your discussions are the jist of what this thread is about.

As for expectations, yes, I still feel the team can vye for a cup this year. It doesn't matter what we think though, it matters what DL thinks. A lot of pieces were added late last season and in the off-season, and how those guys were expected to pan out on paper isn't how they have on the ice in some case (Penner for example). If DL feels that some minor retooling is needed and they are best to make their big push next year, he's fine to do so. Like I said, we have the core in place to build around for the next decade before we have to consider rebuilding.
