There is no one else who can currently provide it and his skills, even if diminished, are in a small and lofty group in the NHL.
Agree with this.

I also think we will get out of tank-mentality (which has understandably descended upon us after that pathetic performance) once we:

- Get PK back
- Team gets back in NHL shape

and yes... I think it'll happen before it's too late. I am sooooo not into another season of misery and we don't have to tank to do well in this draft. We can make the playoffs and be good to go for the draft - it's deep enough.
