    Too much damage has been done by Chia. Way more bad and value bleeding deals. Little done with savvy trades. Good portion of this roster is overrated. This team will be hard pressed to make playoffs the next couple years. Miracle needed.

    • LAKID

      They are not in that bad of shape if they can dump Lucic, get a #1 goalie, get a #1or2 RHD, win the draft lottery , get a coaching staff to help Todd and find a new GM. Easy Peasy, no prob.
