My thoughts exactly. Our guys are still adapting to a new coach and a new system -- and to each other under that system. Accordingly, in my humble opinion, our short-term goal should be to finish the season with: (1) a higher-than-current win percentage, led by (2) improved GFA, while seeing (3) Hank return to form. Those three targets would set us up nicely for next season (especially if we reach them with the current roster). Reaching the playoffs this year is a bonus -- but I expect a Conference Semifinals appearance next season.
For now, there are definitely positives, like our improved power play efficiency. Succeeding in the aspect of the game that most relies on crisp passing, vision and shooting tells me that our roster is more skilled than it might seem. Patience is a virtue; there's no need to make moves for the sake of making moves -- no matter how good they may look on paper. Let's see how our performance evolves with the current roster.
