Sure, we can have a quick bounce back if a few things happen, but plenty of questions this off season...
The deal is to get younger, stronger and faster, overall...

On D.

Just show Boo Boo, Forbert, and Benn a map to the exit ramp.  Keep Poolman for now( who can skate),  and really hope somebody helps him along with his hockey IQ.
Protect Stanley.   Heinola and Slamberg have open slots waiting for them.   Need to bring in another D-man, so we can have enough competent pairings, back there....

Up front.

Convinced PLD was nicked pretty badly, confident he will have a big bounce back.
Have to keep 81 with 55.  Connor looked hopeless without the Chief.
Hard look needs to be taken at Wheeler's role and ice time, moving forward
Get rid of the glue guys - need to get faster and younger there - Ves, Gus, and Harkins waiting and waiting and waiting....
Stas will be 36, love the guy but we need to divert some cap to defensive upgrades.
Copp resigning here or not....is going to create a ripple effect on bottom 6
Perfetti?   Up to him.  If he can break in.....absolutely give him some PP time.  We need more creativity there

Coaching

I have defended Maurice on HF for a number of years now.   I am finding it real hard, right now to continue doing so.
Will deal with that issue in another post

Definitely agree bout' Wheels....I hate to say it but time has caught up....Perreault ...great little hustler ,  when he shows up....too much up and down ....off and on....

Stanley....definitely a keeper on D ...Pionk, Morrisey definitely keep around but I'd like us to go after another big guy on D ,like Stanley who's very mobile and with a good slapper from the point....

The Kracken are in the hunt for anything resembling talent....They'll pick someone off and make it hard for other clubs on the look....I have a feeling Brossoit will be leaving...We're set with Helle but after that ???

 

This club can't be complacent...have to move forward....Dubois is a much better talent than he showed us and when he comes around, I feel can be a solid leader on the team....Going to need that next year

If we opt to go younger/faster with Harkins/VESA/Gustafson/Perfetti and Heinola/Samberg, then the fire PoMo brigade needs to zip it when we have our inevitable regression to likely a non-playoff spot. Expect short term pain if we go that route, which is OK if it means long term improvement (like from 2015-17 into 2017-18) AND fans don’t freak out. First part would not be an unreasonable approach, the second part is wishful thinking knowing this fan base.

Sure, growing pains.........but, we just finished having the pain (worst playoff performance in NHL history, according to advanced stats) , with not much potential upside....except perhaps, Stanley
