The offense has always been a problem since the Predators have been in existance and this half season it finally fell apart because the talent eroded. Spaling didn't develop into a top 6 and most of the team regressed drastically and he said we aren't that far off..
Since the first lock out, we've had a top 10 offense 3 or 4 times, so the offense hasn't always been a problem.
As far as not addressing the lockerroom issue, how do you know that? Maybe it was Tootoo, Suter, Radulov, AK or Erat. How do we even know there was a lockerroom issue, it's all speculation with no real basis. Maybe it was just slow start and injuries. Maybe Marty Erat's problem wasn't something personal, maybe he felt the Predators wingers were going to cut into his time from here out and he wanted to try his luck in a different system.
I think this staff and front office has earned an off season to right this ship. We have no reason not to take Poile at his word.
