15 of those guys from those "garbage teams" (e.g. last year) are still on the roster...
Is adding Niskanen, Braun, Hayes, Pitlick/Twarynski/Bunnaman going to change the team fundamentally? We'll see.
AV is a lot more "energetic" than I thought he would be - not that I followed his tenure in New York and/or Vancouver all that closely.
The team has three guys with NHL head coaching experience behind the bench. We're going to find out how much of the str
I mostly agree, but I think this team needs more than just being a little better than last year.
