I guess my confidence level with the team right now is about as low as the players in themselves. I dont trust them to beat any NHL level team right now.
Edmonton has had the same issues for a long time (90s). The best to which they could aspire is bubble team. They have no idea on dmen, not even close. Their later round drafting/development is the definition of fail. One of the few teams with a top 5 pick that completely failed (Bonsignore). MacT was their best ever coach and he was of the dime a dozen variety. Perfect storm for the cup run with Pronger plus some outstanding reclamation projects which was immediately blown up.
