You're not concerned that this team's power play looks just as anemic as it did last season?
You're not concerned that the two big ticket forwards combined for 0 points?
This front office doesn't get the benefit of the doubt. And if you don't see that he has a propensity for making moves in a vacuum than I don't really know what to tell you. But, y'know, that's only my opinion.
And it's a cliche, but it's true, it's not that they're losing, it's the way they're losing. AV was brought in to improve the offense. But there are no Sedin twins here.
Lundqvist is the one player I'm not worried about. There's no reason to think he's lost "it" and if he has, well, the rest of "it" (the season) is going to be a disaster anyway.
The rest of it--I agree with you: there's plenty of reason to be concerned. Running off to Alberta was really dumb, especially when you have a new coach who is trying to get up to speed on players he mostly hasn't seen play over the last two seasons.
