As much as we've commented on the defensive play, Pavs etc, the Jets are an easy team to play against. When you have only 3 players that can score regularly (Kane, Wheels, Ladd) we don't have the horses to mount a comeback if we fall behind more than 2 goals. So far, we also are very weak at centre. Burmi and Little don't score very often (3 goals each) and I'm not seeing any great playmaking.

On the other hand, Tampa has the offense to be good but lack elsewhere so are below us in the standings. With Redmond and Enstrom, I like our D but it will take forever to to develop adequate goalscoring. Any FA with scoring ability will get multiple offers and will be hard to sign. I can see why Joki didn't any better offers.

We are not out of the playoff hunt yet but I don't see us playing consistently enough to make it. We are what we are, it seems, barely capable of being a .500 team.
