What would be a sign for you that we won't contend next year[ 39 vote(s) ]
1.Holland decides Smith/Kostko are our goalies next year 10 / 26%
2.Holland doesn't get a good roster player (top 6 F, top 4 D) around the draft 1 / 3%
3.Holland overpays Nuge (7M+) 6 / 15%
4.We fail to get the cap hit of Neal or Kostko off the team 2 / 5%
5.A week after free agency we don't have a Barrie replacement and/or quality 3rd line C 1 / 3%
6.We simply enter next season with basically the same shallow roster and are depending on kids to fill the gaps 18 / 46%
7.Nothing can make me doubt we will be a much better team next year 0 / 0%
8.Other. Please explain 1 / 3%

So, that press conference was pretty low on substance, except that we can't sign Smith quickly enough and we love Nuge. And of course Holland has been there, and apparently Nuge changed his first name to Daniel?

MacT taught us well that less information can be a good thing. Being a blabbermouth laying out all your plans for the summer right down to which players you're desperate to trade away is a bad idea :). Bonus points if you don't declare the next season as just a development year a day after your current season just ended.


So, we're all hoping for Holland to pull a rabbit (probably needs multiple rabbits) out of a hat to fix this mess. This is a summer that may demand near perfection from management to actually turn this team into a contender next year, so I'm wondering what people think would be a sure sign to them that the chance at near perfection has pretty much blown up and we're likely screwed next year.
