The team needs a better bottom 6, better defense and better goaltending (especially at backup)... they aren't a playoff team now with a full healthy roster and if RNH misses any significant amount of time that just further degrades their already very low chances at a playoff spot.

Do I want them to make the playoffs? Of course. Does management? Yes, but I don't think the moves they have made have put them much closer to a playoff spot than where the team was last season.

I think if everything goes exceedingly well AND all the longshot bets MacT has made pay off AND the top key players on the team stay relatively injury free... they could possibly challenge for a wildcard spot. I just think that's too much to hope for. Realistically I still see them at #11 in the West.
