We should be expected to be a mid-team in the East, as good as any team behind Boston and Pittsburgh really (I don't think we realistically should be able to challenge Pittsburgh during the regular season unless they get injury problems etc).

We should be a little bit more entertaining than under Torts. And as the team is allowed to pass the puck to each other again, the power play should graduately become better.
Wasn't the whole idea about changing coaches was that we were wasting the last couple of prime years in Hank's career?

Now we need a couple of seasons for the new coach to figure things out?

*sigh* I still think the franchise would've been further ahead to bring in a second assistant. Easiest and most elegant solution. I guess some franchise always have to do things the hard way.
