Unless Kessel decides to go on a hot streak and Grabs does likewise, our offense is likely screwed without Lupes... Really dissapointing as I was pulling for him to break 30 goals and 80 points this season.
Season is pretty much over. I'd be happy to see a miracle but it seems improbable without Lupes scoring touch. Good time for Carlyle to implement his systems correctly and come out of the gates next season in a sprint.
Blessing in disguise. Last thing this team needs is to take them self out of a top 10 draft pick only to fall short of the playoffs. This team needs to tank and get a legit top 5 player.
everybody seems to be forgetting how VERY shallow of a draft this is!
better to tank hard and at least get a potential good player but thats just another reason why it'd be better to just make the play offs!
furthermore, EVERYBODY is forgetting if we dont tank hard enough that the player we pick WILL live with the marlies for at least a year or two.
