I guess we just have very different expectations for what a bunch kids are going to do on an injury ravage roster coached Tank Master Joe Sacco. We're perfectly fine, edmonton's been rebuilding for longer and they still aren't close to where we are. Now that Barrie and Elliott are finally arriving in the NHL our goal scoring will go back up, especially if we can avoid getting killed by injuries. This team needs the core to mature, a real coach, and to make a few more shrewd moves to fill in the remaining two corner stones and we'll be ready to start making deeper and deeper playoff runs.

What we need to do to get there is wait for the right deal for O'Reilly, even if that means waiting into the summer. To get a real coach who can put together a system to take this talent to the next level. And to upgrade on the wing, I'm thinking if we get that top pairing LHD for Ryan, we trade one of Barrie or Ellliott next deadline to get that winger. At that point we'd be making our playoff push with:

McGinn - Duchene - Parenteau
Landeskog - Stastny - Barriott trade
Jones - Sgarbossa - Downie
Highlander - Mitchell - Olver
Bordy - Malone

O'Reilly trade - EJ
Hejda - remaining member of Barriott
Wilson - SOB/Siemens


With a real coach that's a playoff team with tons of room to grow.
