That’s not a systems issue, it’s a talent one. It’s not Barrie/Ceci/Russell’s fault that they’re expected to fill roles they aren’t talented enough to fill.
    I actually agree with RT22 on this one. That D is very suspect. I rank Nurse a little worse though I think he's a 2/3 at best. Last year when he had his banner year it was against the Canadian division, I think management needed to optimistically expect he would perform to 80% when the competition went back to normal. Instead they paid him like he was perennially Norris lock. I remember lots of talk before last year how Nurse was a liability and not going to pan out as top two.

    I was being polite on Nurse as to not be incendiary. I don't personally think he is a 1, but I can see the argument for it.

    The same thing I've been saying for a while now.

    1) A new owner
    2) A new president
    3) An analytics department
    4) A new GM
    5) A new coaching staff or at least a new head coach

    If those 5 things are done, the team has a chance next year!!!
