I agree with all about how bad the team was last year. A huge factor in this in my opinion is that they had a very young team that due to the look-out had to compete against teams loaded with guys who normally would be in the NHL, whereas they had none of those. By the time the NHL resumed play, the hole they had dug was too deep to get out of even with other teams losing their NHL players. Once a mentality of losing sets in it is often hard to shake. Starting the year off on a level playing field this year, and with all the rookies from last year a bit more experienced, I think that we can expect them to be more competitive and enjoyable to watch. Results is a whole different matter, and that remains to be seen.
