I think everyone here is happy with the team's (and franchise's) improvement from the last two years. But I also think everybody knows that we aren't a Stanley Cup contender yet. This team needs excellent goaltending and full effort throughout the roster to win most nights. After being schooled by Detroit (saying that makes me want to throw up) the talent gulf is evident. (I still wonder how Zetterberg lasted until the 7th round...)
So, where do we go from here? What moves do this franchise need to make to be considered as a perennial, legitimate Stanley Cup contender? What are our current strengths that we need to maintain, average areas where we need to improve, and weaknesses that need to be eliminated? I'm thinking long-term, not just this year.
