Let's be in a lottery pick next season for the first 30 games, then move up for 1st place in the end. Sounds a lot better!
Well considering how Yeo's year in Houston went, that was actually how I imagined this year might go. Maybe not as high as first, but still high once things clicked. And indeed things did click, and things were good, but then... but then...
That'd be a huge upgrade offensively from Seto. 30+ goals for a 20 goal guy, and a lot more consistency to boot.
But we'd need to make a move for offense, and badly.
What would be awesome in that situaish is to move Heatley to a contender for a late 1st and then try and swing a trade (late 1st + early 2nd or one of our high end prospects) to move back up and grab Trouba or get a good defenseman.
And then sign Parise and have a nice stock of US Olympians, present and future.
