Lots of holes and in spite of a draft where you got the first overall pick that is going to be VERY good I think playoffs is asking a hell of alot.
Yes they do have some holes to fill goaltending being the biggest one. I they fill that with a solid veteran there is no reason this team should not make the playoffs. I know they were bad last year but they have a strong young core. Brown had nearly 60 points as a rookie and Harper scored 24 goals as a 16 year old. Cairns picked his play up and they have Fox as well. Pelech is one of the best d-men in the league and I thought Mcdowell was good as well. I am not expecting a season like Barrie but I just dont think playoffs are out of the question.
