Again, agreed. I still do not believe we'll ever fall back to the, for lack of a better word, "expansion" years when we first arrived in Jersey.
I'm extremely curious to see what moves we will make this summer, and I have to imagine us using one if not both of our buyouts. That'd be an insane amount of cap space we'll have when the good majority of the league will not.
The problem then becomes who will hit the market.
That being said, if somehow a bona fide #1 winger his the market along with a notable center, and we do not make any attempt to sign them, then I'll start to fear the worst, because this piecemealing from other teams bottom 6 castoffs crap needs to end.
There are some pretty decent plays on the market, considering they don't resign. Raymond I hope we take a look at. Karlsson obviously won't be let on the market, he'll be resigned long term I'd think
To make it they have us needing these to get in:
Sports Club Stats’ numbers indicate that the Devils would have to put the following type of run together to have better than a coin flip’s chance of making the 2013 playoffs:*
6-2-0 finish: 56.5 percent chance.
5-0-3 finish: 75.1 percent chance
6-1-1 finish: 80.3 percent chance
