It's a work in progress, and that is what I expected and hoped for. The last thing I wanted to see was the green guys blossoming and taking us out of a good pick in the draft. I want to see solid two-way players by the end of the season, ready to do something nice with a much better roster.
What is a bit disappointing, though understandable, is the lack of role definition. It's a little better than last year, but ultimately the mish mash of incompatible roles is on Bryan to fix. The increased veteran presence has had a bit of an impact, but without them being able to contribute, it's waning.
