In looking for positives from this trainwreck, I did see one really meaningful thing emerge and that was that the team showed fight down the stretch when they didn't have reason to.
It's easy to forget how young the team as a whole is, but when your most veteran players are 28-29-30 years old with many players significantly young, the collective mental toughness probably won't be there.
The key to the offseason IMO is building some team unity and cohesion. Maybe that means bringing in a couple of "glue guys" in free agency, maybe it means doing some fruity team-building exercises with Tony Robbins in the mountains or something. Talent is not the issue here.
As for the questions:
No, but Rask will.
They don't have a choice, they will have to.
I feel like Dwyer has taken over LaRose's niche on the team so he will probably be moving on. I have been a fan of #59 but he seems to have lost a step and really doesn't play with the edge he used to.
