That hits the NAIL right there. Just not enough skill just yet. We are such a Blue-Collar....Lunchpail team. I live these guys. But we clearly need more SKILL

I've felt since the beginning of the season that we are 2 players away from being a True Cup Contender.

#1 A Skilled, Goal Scorer/Playmaker (preferably a Right Handed Shot)
#2 A True Offensive Defenseman that can run the Power Play

And lastly......a Power Play Specialist Guru who can teach us how not to be Stiffs on the PP. We can't set up, and when we do, there is no movement. The opposing PK reads us like a book and is always 2 steps ahea of us in our own PP.

All this being said.......we are "THIS CLOSE" to getting to the Cup Finals. We are pretty much playing with House Money right now. It just would Svck if we lost this chance BECAUSE of the Devils. It just would hurt that much more.

I'm still confident that we WILL WIN 4 before they do.......but it is clear we are still a bit short on the Skillset of this team. Whether we Win or Lose this year......we still will need to address these issues.
