I suppose I can at least be comforted by the fact that we're not Columbus, who added two very expensive pieces (the wrong ones, I might add) and now don't even have the cap room to fix things. Conversely, we're not the Islanders either, who went even worse than cheap and signed a few guys off of PTOs. Predictably, both teams are sitting in last place in their respective conferences.
As far as identity, sure I want balance. Vancouver proved last season you can be the highest scoring team in the league AND the most stingy defensively at the same time. I don't want a run-and-gun squad or a tight-checking, trap-happy team either. I'm being more specific about identity, and how they're nowhere close to being the team coaching and management has stressed they wanted to be. In fact they're father away from that ideal than they ever were, and that concerns me. It REALLY concerns me that they seemingly took a step back in their development in the same year they traded their first round pick.
It's a long season and the defense looks better-er than the offense looks worse. *shrug*
