Aircool Posted May 1, 2017 Share Posted May 1, 2017 Hmmm. What would I like to see... Good question actually. Our powerplay being better than #29 in the league. I'd like around #20. Our Penalty Kill being better than #28 in the league. I'd like in the 10-15 range. Young players developing. As high in the lottery as possible. Also, as some have said, as many picks in the first 2 or 3 rounds as possible and reasonable. (Can't trade the entire NHL roster for picks.) I think that obviously next year is going to be a painful year. We're not going to do too well. Our best scenario in terms of wins/losses is getting a wildcard and getting bounced in the first round. I don't expect that to happen, but that's the best possible case. Anything short of that means we've missed the playoffs and I'd then prefer the best odds at winning a lottery pick, or at least remaining as high as possible in the draft if we slide. More picks is obvious. Young players developing is obvious. So really, I'd just like to see our team act like we've ever practiced our special teams. These are coach-able systems, sure your talent matters to an extent, but the Sedins should still be capable of running a powerplay, and we have enough players who are quite solid defensively to figure out the PK. There is no good excuse, no matter how bad your team is, for being any lower than #25 in the league in special teams. 5 teams do it every year, and those 5 teams have no excuse. Either your coaches are completely stupid, your players are completely stupid, or either or both are not trying. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
