Im really happy with certain aspects of the team and very disappointed. Mrazek and D-Lark are fk'n amazing. Larkin will be the next Captain. Mrazek shows just how well he performs vs Howard and its amazingly impressive. Better yet, he is still very young and hasn't hit his peak.
Disappointment by a large margin is our shots on net. Remember when we easily doubled up our opponents in that area and if we were even tied for SOG, we were having a bad night and probably going to lose that game. Now we are lucky to tally 25 on. The other negative although its not disappointment, but the inevitable, is D showing his age and Kronner getting pretty soft from his peak due to the same thing.
I totally expect to make the playoffs again and not by the skin of Octopi teeth either. I don't think we are a contender but I cant complain with the performance we are seeing from a team with very young or old players on the team. Blash has change the face of the game, but I think some of his strategies are easily beat by more experienced coaches. He too will improve and I totally expect to see us trully contending in the next few years.
