This team's problem last year was age, leadership, lack of experience on defense, and a bit of talent was lacked
You had about 80% of this team who were 16 or 17 year olds and with the trading of Thompson and McKegg as well as Holden, Marchese and Cazzola, they lost leaders and talent

Next year I expect the defence to improve and the talent level will rise with Mcdavid and Harper/Evans/Brown going in to their second year
Leaders will emerage with Fox and Pelech and potentially Harper

This team will need to get a solid #1 or above average #2 to go along with Williams in net and will need to add a 19 or 20 year old top 2 line player
If they can accomplish that in the off-season I expect at least a 8th seed and maybe a 7th or 6th seed in next years playoffs
