I know it's their 1st year, but not being able to recognize what the Dogs were all about was Bergevin and Co 1st mistake. They recognized it way too late with some Commodore acquisition and so on but most were wrong guys to go with and too late. Hamilton will HAVE to be much better next year. And SURELY playoff bound. Our futures needs to see what this season is all about.
Maybe they got distracted from the lockout. There where many opportunities with the lockout to sign older players to help with the younger kids, they might of underestimated the transition from junior to pro.
