    If Martin Jones starts all 82 games absolutely not.

    I mean...if Jones is your starter I would still say probably no. But your F and D could be lower tier playoff team yes

    I think the Kings are going to take a big step this offseason. But yeah, as a Ducks fan, I can confirm that it's a pretty weak division.

    The biggest thing I'd be worried about when it comes to the Sharks (in this situation), is the continued regression of Burnsy, Vlasic and Karlsson. I'd also assume that Hyman gets more $$$ than that, or at least more term. Guy is a really solid player.

    Sadly I don’t think an above average goaltending tandem and Zach Hyman are the solution to this teams woes. Could be wrong though idk.

    On a side note, Balcers definitely gets protected from Seattle and I’d definitely pass on Calvert and Bergmann.

    Karlson is still solid I have a feeling he has a rebound year next year after his first season in a long time without a season ending injury.
    Burns still is elite.
    Hyman is getting 5.5 a year for 5+ years
    But still we need another top 6 forward
    Balcers will be protected he looks like a solid middle 6 piece for us.
    I want to stay away from Berniers and go after Driegder.

    I think we're a top six, middle six, and defensive center away from being a good team. We have people that could develop into that, but will they?

    I hope Karlsson rebounds. I don't think I've ever seen a player regress like that.

    I’ve seen it a lot, players get that big payday and just loose the hunger and their edge.

    Skinner, Bobby Ryan, Neil, lucic, to name a few and I could go on.
