I wish I could be as optimistic as others on this board, however I don't think we have a shot at the playoffs yet. Getting Darnell Nurse was huge but we don't know how well his transition to the major league will be, I am sure he'll be a NHL regular, but how long until he is ready and how long until he is a impact player is still to be decided. I like that we have a bunch of D-Men signed and in training but alot of them were low drafts and hard to say if they will be solid players at the NHL level or not. I also don't like Dubnyk I don't have faith in him, granted he would be better if we had some decent defense to back him up. I like the direction the club is going but I don't think we have seen the peak of Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, or Yakupov, they are darn good but their best is still to come and it may still be a few years away. Are defense is not ready yet, and we have a goalie that is known for letting in soft goals. We still have a few more years of rebuilding to go.
