It isn't perfect, but it'll do.

As for the next year debate, we aren't contenders, so there's two ways to look at it.

1. It doesn't matter if we win, so give him time to develop in the CHL and don't rush him.

2. It doesn't matter if we win, so give him tons of minutes and let him makes mistakes this year and learn from them.

I'll trust Poile and Trotz to make that call.
This is where I think you are wrong. One of the top goalies on the planet, a very good d-corp, an amazingly gritty bottom six with some pop, size, and what should be balanced scoring. This won't be sexy hockey, but it will be aggressive. We have the guys who will work hard again
