There will be a lot of change next season I'm thinking. Nelson, Nino and Strome are all going to be pushing for Okposo, Nielsen and Bailey's spots on the roster.

I say in 2 years time we'll be a playoff team (provided we have a solid goaltending option).

Moulson - JT - Nino
Grabner - Nelson - Strome
Okposo - Nielsen - Bailey
Martin - Cizikas - Ullstrom
Seems like you nailed the problem right here. These are young, high draft picks that should be emerging as first line talent, not being "pushed out" by the next wave already. Obviously scouting/drafting has been aweful if this is truly the case. HArd to rebuild under those circumstances.
