    Although if Yzerman brings Blashill back next year I'll be pretty upset

    They will contend for a playoff spot in 2023. 2024 is probably when they have a shot of winning a series.

    Hopefully we do look at Rikard Gronborg as our next coach. Would be nice to think outside the box in a league where that barely ever happens. Plus, he knows so many of our Swedes; it could be a seamless transition.

    I think we make the playoffs next year.

    We can reshape the D, but we have such a long way to go on the backend.

    We have two NHL caliber defensemen on the roster. One is a 20 year old rookie asked to play the toughest minutes in the league, the other is a second pairing offensive defenseman.

    That’s what I mean. We can’t reasonably expect Edvinsson to replicate what Seider has done next season, and we still need three more NHL on top of that. I don’t see Steve going nuts in FA for D, so barring trade, I think it’s going to be more stopgaps while guys like Edvinsson, Johansson, Sobrango, etc develop. That’s why I think it’s still 2-3 years before we are a consistent playoff threat.

    At least they have several bites at the apple to find some competent guys.

    Edvinsson
    Sebrango
    Wallinder
    Johansson
    Tuomisto
    Buium
    Viro
    McIsaac

    But we have $40+ mil in cap space, our stop gaps going to be (or at least should be) better than the aging vets we are playing out their contract on and waiver pick up on our roster. Sign a couple older top end FA defenseman to 1-2 year deals. Aren't any stars available in FA that i know of on D, but there are some huge upgrades. Also hopefully a competent goalie to replace Greiss helps as well.

    It’ll likely be the year after but they could just decide to do a Makar like deal with both guys when the 2024 season ends.

    Love the kids game but he’s bottom 6 type guy. I think he would be a worthy signing but I assume the Wild land him.

    There was a moment last night where one Ranger was slashing at Ned for a rebound, and the two Wings (Hronek was one, the other was Lindstrom I think) just stood there allowing it to happen. I’m not wanting this team to go out and trade for a bunch of goons but the fight the team had at the beginning of the season is completely gone. That can’t happen, and it’s indicative of the need for a new voice behind the bench.

    Pretty comfortably in 9th place for the lottery. Watch us finally win it in one of the worst years at the top end in recent memory.

    Sucks we picked up so many OT points this year because we are finishing the season strong for the tank.

    We have played in 20 OT games this season. If we only play in 15 we probably have 6-8 points fewer.

    Since January 1st, we are 11-26 (I’ve removed OTL from the equation, so this is straight up win or lose), after going 14-17 in prior to 1/1. So brutal.

    I think this team has given up on Blashill. They really desperately need a coaching change in offseason. Defense is pathetic, but some of these results show lack of effort not just skill imo

    It’s so insulting that Staal and DeKeyser are our assistant captains. Neither should be in the NHL. Staal makes Fat Maroon’s skating look like Connor McDavid.
