I hope to god that you didn't enter this season with aspirations of a Cup run. Unrealistic.

We've been set up to grow this team into what we've all wanted: balanced team with centers who can make an impact, dynamic wingers, and blueline depth.

When you look at my Dream '16 team, provided that the youth grows as they should, we're missing toughness on the back end. That's it.


I don't think he's infatuated with them. He just didn't want to come in and immediately clean house - he wanted to see for himself what he had/didn't have. Hopefully he has done that.
He had a full season last year to see them in action. Darcy did a few (on paper) good things. Of course, Goose for a 1st seems fantastic, until you realize that he didn't do anything to fill that void. A draft pick can't win a faceoff. So I'm not convinced Regier needed to be sacked at the end of the year, but extending him was beyond premature.

As for Ruff...time was up eons ago.
