I feel like people are significantly overrating that roster. Guys like Mancari are not positive contributors outside of the PP — that was a big mistake by Gillis IMO. If you sign a player to an NHL contract to contribute to the AHL team, they better be a strong ES player. The defense should've seen a veteran signing to stabilize it (not Baumgartner
) and the 4th line was barely adequate the whole year.
It didn't help that they ended up facing the Rampage in the first round — they did badly against them the whole season.
