I wouldn't be surprised if they finished close to last. They need more defensive support and secondary scoring. Maybe they'll get more next year.
Some of these draft picks we thought would work out and could help out for our 3-4 lines don't seem to be doing so as quickly as we'd hoped (Paajarvi, Pitlick, Teubert, Marincin, Lander). Hartikainen at this point seems like a better prospect than any of those guys. I don't know if the cupboard is as full as we think. We might need to hit up other teams for support players in the coming years.
As I said earlier, I'm more excited for next year than this year. I hope it's not another bottom 5 finish but wouldn't be surprised if it was.
