has he added a single piece to the puzzle yet?.....i understand that some patience is needed, but he hasnt done anything to actually gain my confidence.....He hasnt made the team better in any real way.

hopefully his legacy will be an amazing draft guy.....maybe scheifele gets stronger on his skates and becomes a star.....but in my opinion, its way too early to say "This team is going to be something special in several years."

there is very little evidence to support that.

man, can someone re-size that picture...

i can't really disagree with this, since this is effectively the other side of the coin from where i'm standing.

good and valid points too, peter

that said, just as there is very little apparent evidence we have right now to Chevy's track record, we have even less to consider what his legacy may be

I personally think he's making some decent moves. He seems big on giving guys opportunities, but at the same time he does understand what our record is.

I do feel we need to be patient; this team isn't going to become a consistent playoff contender overnight. I have faith that Chevy understands what kind of pieces build playoff teams, given his success in the past. That might not end up being the case, but we'll see what happens.

We also have to keep in mind, some key pieces on our team are still very young, and time should hopefully give them the experience they need to perform at a higher level where we can start to expect more out of them, but those things are out of Chevy's control. Our team isn't mediocre simply because Chevy makes (or fails to make) these moves. Its also a team with some key pieces simply too young for the shortened 2012-2013 season.
