I think we are at least 3 seasons away from being a contender in the finals because at that point we will also have Tinordi, Beaulieu, Thrower, McCarron, Thomas, Collberg, De La Rose etc. playing in the NHL (hopefully).

Maybe even Fucale ;-)
not even close folks

we have too many holes , lack grit , warriors , role players , we don't have that the lineup to win 4 rounds of attrition

our D overall is not built to win in the playoffs . Pk is great , Emelin a legit top 4
Gorges should be a third pairing guy , excluding the kids for now the rest I don't want on this team

upfront size and grit is a major issue

Pleks and Max are fine but not winners come playoff time , Pleks has never elevated his game when it counts

so its the kid line and questions everywhere

look at Chicago , their role players were Oduya, Rosival , Shaw, Bolland , Kruger , Frolik , Bickel , etc to go with a top 5 player in Towes , a top 10 winger in Kane , a top D man in Keith and a true shut down D in Seebrook

sorry to burst our bubble we don't have that to go with our core , we are still trying to establish a legit core

we are a decent team but contenders we are not ...not yet
