We are optimistic going in to the 2021-2022 season. The team is definitely better than last year as we have added some key pieces. We are expecting ourselves to make the playoffs but we know it will tough. General manager William Karlsson has been working hard with building this team and he made his last offseason deals yesterday when Marchessault and Brown got dealt as cap dumps.

Transactions:

Players in:
Jesper Öhrvall
Zach Osburn
Sidney Crosby
Jospeh Gareffa
Patrick Shea
Jonas Brodin


Players out:
Justin Faulk
Lukas Sedlak
Brett Connolly
Andrej Sustr
Alex Galchenyuk
Zemgus Girgensons
Jonathan Marchessault

The team have improved in a way that we now have players that fits our way of playing hockey better than last year. Most notable is Sidney Crosby that got ranked as the best center in the league a few days ago. We are very happy to have Sid on our roster and he will help us reach our goals. We will be looking to improve our depth and it will likely be some changes in the next few days.
