I completely agree with everything you just said, I think our opinions are more similar than not (other than
This team is good, and considering what they're going through (over reliance on rookies, no Pronger, inconsistent defense, bad goaltending), the situation they're going through is not that bad. However, improvement is always necessary. Timonen's gone after next year, Pronger's likely gone already. What's really disheartening is seeing Coburn and Meszaros: they're still better than Carle, but have not progressed over the last 2 seasons.
It's a shame they're in this transition phase, as right now, we're seeing Timonen at the top of his game.
