Keep in mind they came closer than anyone to knocking out the Cup-Winning Hawks.

They were a shallow, shallow team from Day 1 but somehow it all started to come together towards the end of the season.

Even with the additions of Weiss and Alffy, it's going to take the returns of Helm and Eaves, and likely a deadline-day Dman pickup before we call that team a legit contender again.

The miracle that was last spring won't happen again IMO.
