This team was built to have postseason success and trudge its way with boring (but winning) hockey in the regular season. The last two postseasons, the goaltending has let us down (and defense in general). Again, not anything that can be shored up.

Trades, particularly deadline trades, historically provide very little return. this team, like most in the NHL, is going to live or die the way the way it's built.

Didn't we just recently destroy both of those teams?

Everyone put their pitchfork away for a little longer. I'm seeing big changes in this team slowly but surely. Give the new coach a little more time on this home stand to actually do some coaching.
