Again, as has been the theme here, business as usual, go play the next game regardless of who, where, circumstances.
This team has done great things all season, and has some things it struggles with.
As I have written often the ups/downs will continue.
The schedule/rest is taking a toll, other teams have it much easier, nothing can be done about that or if the injuries continue.
Garth Snow exhausted most of his trade chips last summer, and Vanek trade.
The first step is very simple right now, qualify for the 2014-15 NHL playoffs.
Nothing is close to clinched yet in that regard, keep subtracting from the number to eliminate Florida. (giving Florida ROW despite heavily favoring NYI)
Until then, not much to write, keep working/earning points.......qualify.
If they qualify we can then discuss seeding/next step.
Just stick to business, all they can do, and the best way to get there.
The rest is just a lot of useless banter, many need it to market themselves.
I do not need that here, and neither do you, it changes nothing.
