This is Poile and Trotz's ultimate team. They had plenty of resources this summer from a salary perspective and in the cupboard in regards to prospects. They chose not to pursue a trade. They chose to draft Seth Jones rather than deal the pick, trade up, trade back, etc. They chose the free agents they signed and the term. Poile has publicly said he is happy with the forwards. Trotz as well.

This is their playoff roster. This is their end game.

Live or die by it IMO.

Yes. You can always make an excuse. You can always say there is a reason for our slump. You can also point to the construction of this team.

Let's see where the season ends. Regardless of the on ice product, a lot of talent is on this roster and in the farm system. If this team misses the playoffs again, you have to think there will be consequences.

As an aside, one wonders when Poile is simply going to retire.
