    The Coach. New fast transition high tempo style, insistent on uncompromising work ethic and team first attitude, proper deployment of Sedins, redeployment of Dorsett away from a tough guy punching over his weight, sensible pregame roster decisions and in-game tactical changes, and so much more upside. That alone is enough for me as far as required excitement for this season's expectations...and now add in the developing young talent! I am in!☻ I will be changing my signature soon...I have found HOPE!
  6. 4-1 Oilers ☹ Erickson But ...GCG anyways !☻
  7. Jim Benning interviewed by Bob McKenzie

    Quick summary of all questions regarding roster... "We'll see at camp" Lots of competition and after preseason a good looking minor league team in Utica with depth for injury callups. Already better than last year IMO.
  8. A Team-Guy, $ Aspect

    I regret that we are once again placing our Cup chances in the hands of Swedes. I love the twins but they just couldn't get it done when it counted. I fear the same for Dahlen and Pettersson. We need heavier players ( notice I didn't say tougher) with skill in this division and players that will go through h3ll to stick up for themselves and each other. Otherwise we will just continue to be playoff fodder for the other Conference teams. Glass may have fit the bill...highly unlikely EP does. Last thing we need is a recycle of the Sedin experiment for the next 15 years. Here's hoping they (EP a Dahlen) get traded.
  9. timeline to contention

    Which year? Hard to guess...but not soon. For the team to be contending again by 2022 is best case scenario in my mind. And I believe that the team roster will be significantly different by then with only a couple of current players remaining (if that). Which is why I find it hard to get excited about anything other than the blue chips...most of the others will be gone. I think we have at least a couple blue chips in the system and more coming through drafts...that is where my focus lies. As fans, the gnashing of teeth over the current roster composition that we engage in is purely mental masterbation. In the meantime I will idolize Bo and pray for a pleasant surprise out of one (or more) of Goldy, Boeser, Dahlen, and their ilk. And I will cautiously watch Demko, Juolevi, Virtanen, and their ilk, careful not to get too excited until warranted. And I will have faith in TL/JB...I have no other choice.
  10. Hopes for 2017-18

    My hope is we never hear Linden/Benning talk about another incoming player as being "foundational"! According to the brass, we already have an entire team of foundational players...and we finished 29th. Skill and speed please.
