Entry: April 1st, 2014

Well March was a bloodbath. Just four wins in fourteen games and now the team is in risk of completely missing the playoffs. I knew when I accepted this position that the fan base would be looking to me for leadership and now that the team is struggling everyone is calling for my job since we didnít make any moves on deadline day.

I felt that if we got everyone back and healthy it would basically be the same as making additions to the team but for some reason they cant get back the mojo they had in December and January. Iím concerned the guys are gassed after the Olympics but Babs canít give any games off because now we need every point we can get.

In terms of making the playoffs weíre saved by the fact that our division and the rest of the Western Conference is very poor. None of the teams behind us have shown any pulse since the deadline. However a first round exit from the playoffs is almost as bad as not even making them for this franchise.

Despite the on ice disaster the team has suddenly turned into, the front office staff is all in business as usual mode and working hard to prepare for the offseason. The players below have their contracts up and several of which weíll have to look hard at whether or not we will want to offer them another deal.
