Goaltending is the wild card, of course, but Emery-Mason or Thomas-Mason wouldn't be near as bad as Bryz-Leighton. Bryz-Bob wasn't great but I don't know how to explain that.

At least if the team sucks again, we'll have new management and new coaches - and a new system could be the difference maker in how the team performs down the road.
Agreed about getting a replacement, though, I'm okay with it being someone not yet in the NHL but somewhere close. I'd absolutely love to land Klefbom+MPS, but that's not realistic. I'd settle for Martin Marancin. Had a solid AHL year, and could take the next step next season.
