This team is so much better than teams we've had in prior years, but there are huge holes, the major one being goaltending, the other being the lack of a solid star on offense to lead the attack.
I have no comment on the past Panthers regimes. But if you look at the DT rebuild of the hawks and the Lombardi rebuild of the kings, it holds true that there were a few years of mediocrity in the beginning. This is followed by a few years of failed playoff runs, which was followed by a cup. Its the process were in, so its not surprising to me that the team is gawd awful right now. If it didn't take so long, and wasn't so hard, everone would have a cup. Many teams try this type of a rebuild and fail. Other teams get stuck in mediocrity. I just hope we do our rebuild right, and really, we just have to trust that we got the right guy, DT, and that he will do it the right way. Assuming that happens, then we just need to not get unlucky.
