The best I can realistically hope for is a dynamic new coach behind the bench. Did I say "realistically"? More like wishfully!
There is part of me -- I donít know if it is naive or wishful thinking or logical or whatever people want to label it -- but there is part of me that honestly thinks a goaltending upgrade, though not a cure for all that ailed this team will be a big step. Not a playoff caliber step, but certainly a not-the-worst-team-in-the-league step.
Thatís independent of the coach hire and whether or not Howson and Priest maintain their jobs.
