I mean if we end up being bad again next season becoming a seller makes sense, but to want to be terrible ahead of time is just pathetic and takes away all joy of watching the game.
No, more denial in not recognizing that this team needs some real firepower and it is highly unlikely to come from anything but a draft pick.
It should be priority for our management to add to this element of our franchise: We decided to build from the net out, and we've done that. We have a good crop of D prospects, an excellent goalie who will be entering his prime in another couple of years, and a strong supporting cast of forwards. But lets be honest, we don't have a single forward yet who can change the game.
It remains to be seen if our draft pick this year will be that forward for us, or if he is, will that be enough?
