Having said that, if defense/goaltending doesn't go ideally, drafting a franchise player in this year's stacked draft isn't the worst thing. Then we have a great UFA crop in July to try to use our cap space on.

This franchise is currently in the healthiest state its been since 2004.
Hey I'm all gun ho for the playoffs, I hope they do make it of course, and they could for sure. Reimer has to get back to the way he played before his injury and Carlyle's system along with with everyone working their ***** off every night, we have a shot at the 8th spot.

I've been saying that all along, if we make the playoffs great, if we stink up the joint and grab another top 3-5 pick.
