What excites me though is that next year at this time we should have more capspace, another lottery pick and Jonas will be coming over. All things that are vital to this team going forward.
If you are expecting a lottery pick, then there is no point in being close (or closer) to the playoffs (which i don't think will really happen, but i digress).
As for the original question as to whether we're on the right track, who really knows? We got a great draft pick, but he won't play next year. We got a new coach who should be good, but is inexperienced as a HC. And then the rest of the players are the same. Based on that, we're pretty much at the same position as we were last year.
