Quite simply, this is a long term project and there are not enough quality free agents to change that. I doubt parise or Suter come here and the drop off is great after that. We need 2 top 6 guys and 2 defenders including a top pairing guy. We have a GM who cannot assess the team or his coaches and who went into the season with Nervous Willie and his magic chalkboard as the most experienced coach. Can Smith or Chaisson help? Probably not much next year and did we really burn a year of Reilly's ELC so he could watch the most important game of the year from the press box? I have contended that Lets is a middle of the pack goalie who can get hot. i am more convinced than ever of that but really that is the least of our worries. Newy continues to be in way over his head and again we seem unlikely to make the playoffs next year unless we make materially changes.
