They do deserve to lose games right now, but they are also not getting any bounces or breaks right now, those things tend to even out as the season goes on.

I think our pick will more realistically be in the 6-13 range and I feel pretty confident that they'll deal the pick for immediate help.
I dunno.

It's not just one thing with us. If it was just goaltender I'd feel that would normalize. It it was just poor defensive play they'd adjust. Some days we can't score a goal if our lives depended on it. Special teams... special indeed.

It's looking like a Sabres, Oilers, Panthers cellar. Carolina and Nashville will have to crawl out when their goaltenders recover. Philly and NYR IMO will rebound. Jersey doesn't matter cause they don't have a pick.

Maybe I'm just rationalizing cause I really want Ekblad. Most cost effective way to grab that top pairing defenseman is through the draft.
