oh wait thats the same as last year. D is a bit worse in play even though MDz has been great. So I guess I'm not sure. How is Moore? Essentially we should compare him to Bickle that HAS to be an upgrade and takes pressure off the other two pairs. I loathe the fact we don't have Artie still. We'll have to see with Clowe and Brassard. If Clowe is Milan lucic thats phenomenal.
All in all I feel we took a tentative drunken step diagonally forward for this year and the future.
But that feeling is based on hope. I think that Gabs falling off a cliff this year destroyed this team and I'm not sure anyone is to blame we were all including most of the league in agreement the team was set up well.
The bolded is where I'm at as well.
Unfortunately, that came at a *major* cost though. We lost all that great chemistry, which we now have to try to rebuild, and we also wasted a ton of good draft picks. Overall, a pretty poor job done by Slats. Though I must say I'm excited to see this team as it's put together right now. At the very least, they shouldnt get pushed around as much.
