As long as it isn't some retread has been then I can see them doing well. I'm of the opinion that the goalie resigning wasn't that bad. Little pricey but now they have to find a way to convince someone that Talbot can reclaim his past glory.
You gotta think trading Hall for Adam fucking Larsson of all people and the Eberle trade turns into waiver fodder. That is not a good look. They have a few good pieces but their boat anchor Defense with even more boat anchor contracts are weighing them down.
You would think someone of McJesus's skill would be able to mesh well with a plethora of guys, but apparently not. You don't even have to think as fast as him, you just have to somewhat keep up. They put him with Drai and Nuge a lot but that just depletes the other three lines. I can't imagine the mutiny if they get someone like Jack Hughes on top of the 30 other top picks they've had in the last few years.
