A lot of it has to do with culture. The teams that end up like that are the teams the blow up everyone over the age of 22 and ice an AHL team for years on end. Then when McDavid and Eichel show up, they're alone and the attitude around the team reeks. In our case, I don't think Hank ever let's that happen, both on the ice and in the room. But we can help him out with that by starting to improve the team this summer. I would leave Kreider, Spooner, Namestnikov, and Shattenkirk alone. Like I said earlier, I'd be ringing Chia off the hook about Klefbom. If there's reasonably young free agents out there who can help this team in 18-19 or a guy we can rejuvenate like a Grabner, you sign them. I listen to offers on Zuccarello but don't trade him for the sake of trading him. Fire the coach, he makes us lose. By no means do you go "all in" on winning the Cup or buy at the deadline, but for heavens sake try to be better than we were this year. It shouldn't be hard. This team blows this year.
