No, we are not a contender this year in my opinion. Box out our forwards and forecheck the heck out of our D and most teams take us out in the first or maybe second round. I'm enjoying watching the kids get better and my veteran favs this year so I'm not a hater or anything. I, like most here just think we need some ingredients to really contend. The equivalents of Mac, Shanny and Lids would do it in my opinion.
Oh, is that all? Just a power forward and two hall of famers? Lol.
I'm just kidding with you. I agree. We're a decent team, but we're not a contender. I've said elsewhere, we don't beat good teams and we're only .500 against crappy teams lately. Our offense is not existent most nights, and our blue line defense well but does nothing else well.
Like krsmith17 said in another thread, I think we could be a contender in the next couple of years but a couple solid acquisitions. But not this year.
