Drury was 29 when we first made the playoffs. 30 the following year and then it was over.
ROR turns 27 before this season ends. Kane will be 27 at the start of next year. Okposo will be 30 at season’s end. If we are trying to build a team that is good for a decade, which was why we tanked, these guys aren’t going to be part of that very long. They are the here and now and if we are very lucky they still be at their peak when we turn the corner 2 years from now.
The playoffs wasn’t realisitic. We discussed our terrible bottom six before the season even started. We discussed the poor play in the pre-season, we discussed the injuries on D and the lack of any of the kids stepping up to push AAAA and journeymen off the roster.
While this team should be better then we have seen, most experts picked us 6 or 7th in the Atlantic and that looks correct, again.
