Say what you want about what Muckler did, but he did what he had to to get to the Finals! He went for it all.
If only we had Schubert as our 6th defenceman and 12th forward today! And that creative dynamo Tyler Arnason. Let's get Bondra when we have a bunch of finesse scorers and no grinders! Let's trade Havlat for Tom Priessing! Ohhhhh the cap savings!!!!!

Seriously? Our depth is MASSIVELY better then under Muckler. We could go to the Finals with this team IMO. There are really no huge flaws in this team.

We will have endless cap space and tons of prospects at the deadline. If Murray wants he can add virtually anything this team needs then at a very low $$$$. Plus we have so many prospects we need to deal a few anyway because there are only so many future NHL spots.

There is so little reason to be pesimistic. We shouldn't be spending to the cap at this point anyway since we will need to resign the players we have internally at some point. Only useful contracts are 1 or 2 year deals and most UFAs won't sign short term unless they are old or proving something.
