This is an average team at best. They have to keep getting better.
The only thing that is clear is that they got worse after they traded their two best forwards. That's not exactly shocking either.
They could be even worse right now if they had kept Tkachuk and Guerin.
They could be worse if they traded a 4th and 5th round picks Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin too.
yes, they could.
