I think you're overreacting to this year. It's better that we're the worst team than being a 9th seed. It's also excusable. We've lost an insane amount of guys to injury and we had no preseason/training camp.
I do think being super loyal to Tallon is completely naive but he does have a plan. Draft picks take time to develop and the only way a small market team like ours will ever establish itself is to have a good core of young guys. With this upcoming draft, Tallon's building of the core foundation is going to be pretty much complete and we should expect to see results.
Going into next year, the scariest thing is not having Weiss back or someone to fill his spot. If we sign him or find a replacement, I think we'll be okay.
Howden/Skille/Upshall/Smithson who knows
Plus, we'll have the possibility of Bjugstad, Trocheck, and Petrovic competing for spots plus whomever we draft with our top 3 pick.
If Markstrom plays well on a consistent basis we should be in a position to compete most nights.
