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.
We are currently yes. But with 3+ roster spots open and us apparently going after a Center we certainly won't have the same roster going into the next season, so i suppose we should just see what our roster looks like whenever the next season comes around. But really, my OP wasn't about next season it was are we on the right track going forward for the future with the young pieces we have Jonas included.
