Absolutely, but that's what I meant about the remaining capspace. If they use it prudently to replace and augment the roster this team could be in the playoff hunt. PAP is not the end-all, be-all to NYI transactions this offseason.

A) they need to replace his production (IMO there are better options out there than PAP)
B) they need a 2nd-line center (or a valid 3rd liner, ala Stoll, and trade one of Neilsen/Bailey)
C) they need at least ONE top-4 D man, more so two
D) hiring a coach with a better track record and system would help as well
