Hope I'm wrong but IMO if we don't add a GOOD top 6 forward I think we will be missing the playoffs. I know we played decent this year in the playoffs. (Being a transition year) But playing an 80 plus game season next year some Injuries are gunna happen. I don't think we have the talent to overcome them. Dats, zetts being an older age are prob gunna both sit out some time due to an injury. That's something in hockey that just happens. Also put stats aside dats looked like he lost a big step in his game (hopefully just injured) and that's not gunna be good for this team Next year. I guess here's to hoping the rookies have a great year and we find our way into the playoffs. to me, without adding a quality forward it's looking like we may miss the playoffs for the first time in for ever. But who knows...... I think tho it's time for Kenny to strike on a deal. The clock is ticking
If this year was an 82 game season, I think we would have made the playoffs easily. We were clearly rolling at the end and I see no reason why that wouldn't continue for 20+ more games. They just seemed to find their game there at the end. Abby realized his role wasn't to be a top liner, but rather to create space for his linemates. The rookie line came together and created huge mismatches for other teams trying to match lines. Howard became an absolute stud and everyone started getting healthy again. Also, helm would have come back, which would have been a huge boost.
Change nothing and let Tatar play and we have a cup contender.
As far as the bernier trade goes, I think the kings robbed the leafs. Bernier isn't exactly a sure thing, and scrivens will be a great backup to quick. Frattin has pretty good potential as well
