A lot of limited players. Hence, the lottery finishes.

This year is better than prior years, but this team is still way off in key areas. Size and skill being a tough one to address, across the NHL. Not saying JJ was that guy, but based on how he was playing in Europe, it would have been nice to see that. Maybe we will in a couple of months.
We do have one player who is big, fast, physical, skilled and hard working. His name is David Ullstrom. AKA JT's future linemate.

Disappointed about Joensuu, but oh well. Wasn't too excited about him coming back, mainly because he pretty much looked like a pylon during his last stint. I know he's not the same player, but that image has yet to leave my brain.
