The thing that I think was most important about the Edmonton game is that this team showed some mental resiliency.
After getting crushed by BC, seeing the HC fired and their best defensive player traded away for essentially nothing, the team could have easily folded up their tents and gone home, so to speak.
But instead, they really showed up. Yes, there were plenty of mistakes and yes, many guys still have alot to do to develop, but some of the guys who we know are good athletes are starting to become better players. Examples: Bauman, Rodriguez, Tisdale, Thompson, Knowlton.
Let's face it, playoff chances are slim to none this year, and our chances of doing anything in the playoffs were even worse. So hopefully BO'B and MB will focus on player development for the rest of the year. This is probably our best approach for getting a few wins too!
