Don't panic. Yes, 5 losses in a row ain't pretty but they're really not playing THAT bad. Jurco played, Sheahans coming up and Tatar/Gus are looking good. (Not sure why Eaves/Sammy are around, but . .) Smith and Kindl were making brutal mistakes every game the last 2 seasons but have really come around. They probably won't be all stars but look like solid defenseman that no longer make those mistakes (ok, even Dats makes a mistake once in awhile). They went through the learning curve and are now solid D contributors. With these youngsters coming around the future looks better, because the day in coming when Z/13 are gone. Really like seeing young guys figuring it out, even if it costs some games. Wouldn't mind seeing 2 more take Eaves/Sam and going 'all in' on the future even if we don't get far this playoffs. And don't get me stated on Mantha (foaming at mouth).
