It's far from great and definitely not enough to compete. It's still early into the off-season but as things look today this team won't really be competing for another year or two at the earliest. From Yzerman's statement today: "We are committed to building a franchise focused on draft and development". Which actually makes me wonder about Marty's future with the team too TBH.

Then again, I guess you never know with Yzerman. As it stands (17/23 players on the roster) we have approx. $10 million in cap space - still counting Ohlund though. Malone might soon be asked to deliver his 12 team trade list which opens up another $4.5 million - minus whatever the return is.

Lots of holes. Lots of options.
