Pacman and Subban are going to have to continue to improve. We'll need big performances out of them if we want to do anything.

Markov? Who the hell knows... Still think we should deal him and Pleks and I really hope we do if we fall out of it. Should've dealt these guys long ago.

Price (as usual) is the key. If he's average as he was last year, it's going to be a tough road. If he plays like he can though, he can get us in by himself. He's a premier goalie and he needs to start consistently playing like one.

Bottom line: I'd have no problem with another high pick next draft. We could surely use it and if you add another strong young player I think we'd be in great shape going forward. Still think we should be rebuilding more aggressively but at least now we have some guys like Galchenyuk to build around.
A paradox: it's probably not worth it to trade Markov unless he bounces back with a vengeance.
