To quote Carey Price, everyone "chill".
Even before the deadline I said Bergevin had a very difficult decision to make, which would be to decide if this team was for real and to make a push, or if our record was flattering us and we still had a ways to go. But like you said - we're not as bad as we're showing now, but we're probably not as good as we were showing for the first 40 games of the season. 40 games sounds like a lot, but really, it's the first half of a regular season. It's not a whole lot. It's not something you can take to the bank, necessarily.

Not too many teams go from drafting 3rd overall one year to challenging for the Cup the next. You have to be realistic and expect some growing pains. And I think that played a part in Bergevin standing pat at the deadline, for sure.
