very little room for error.

We're a 6-10th place roster with the cards stacked against us.

All I hope is that we have either an excessively negative season (i.e another bottom-of-conference/league finish) or an excessively positive season (everything goes right & we secure a top-2 conference seeding, ensuring at least 2 rounds of home-ice in the playoffs).


worst case is that we do well enough to entice MB to either stand-still or worse, trade assets for short-term reinforcements by the deadline, and then end up just missing or out in the first round of the playoffs.


I hope that, however the season goes, MB stays firmly focused on a long term plan, & any in-season trade is of the moving unwanted contracts for depth players/picks variety.
