Coaching, our transition game, the PP, and our prospect system depth are more complicated issues. And even then everything but our system depth could be dramatically improved in one season (though our coaching won't be and will continue to hold our roster back).
Agreed. Those middle two depend a lot on Barrie, EJ, and Elliott all taking the next step. EJ in becoming an all around #1, and the other 2 establishing themselves in the NHL. The talent is there, it just has to come around. The PP could use a true sniper, but we could at least be 10-15 with the talent already on this team and better coaching.
