I wasn't high on Rolston from what I was hearing from Rochester, and the regression of Adam and McNabb, although there might have been directives to develop certain players with more icetime etc. He might still turn out to be decent, but right now it's all talk. Like his attitude, but it's gotta translate in this half season to improved effort (if not results).

Of course the catch-22 is improved effort on this team would likely lead to improved results and ruin the draft position...because this team isn't completely devoid of talent. There are still enough talented players where with a little bit of effort, they'd win games. Even as bad as they've been, how many games have been 1 or 2 goal games (excluding empty netters)? They'd likely win some of those playing up to their potential.
