yup...

frankly, when I look at our current roster, as is, I see a group that, much like in 2008, has the right elements to be a big surprise IF they stay lucky on the injury front.

basically another year where we are likely to finish in the 6-10 group, but if things go well, a top-4 seed is plausible, just as if things go miserably, another lottery pick will be in the cards.

we don't have the depth or elite talent up front to be a playoff "lock", but we have a lot of good pieces in place.

while many are skeptical, i think that Therrien will get them moving in the right direction, and punching slightly above their weight class.


and all of this is with the roster as it stands today... if MB has a move (or two) up his sleeve to address the top-6 or top-4 holes, the outlook gets that much better.
