We've been focused on this past three years <hes> we we knew what we had and the direction we wanted to go. We wanted to protect our picks. Protect our prospects but we want allow this team every every chance to remain competitive ahead shown us over the years. They Donald back from all three deficits. They won Stanley Cups. We want to remain that but we're also very focused on protecting our picks protecting our prospects when we're not competitive spirit that competitive level drop last year and the drop to unaccessible unacceptable level. We knew we had to speed up the process and that's why we're in here in front of you tonight and a lot of you. Kinda understood some of the moves last year but at the end of the day we need to fully embrace building a contender for the future and we need your help doing that and we all got to be on the same page but it's time to do that and that's what we want to unveil tonight. We want to lead you down the path a little bit and show you some of the things we have planned. We understand that the issues they're big. They're challenging and and we can't do it alone. There's not one departments not development development. It's not scouting. It's not coaching has to all work together. We integrate all our departments to to allow this vision to come through. We we want to build a contending team around the corner or cornerstone pieces that we have in place and these guys have a history of winning the Copa Tars the doughty's the browns sounds of they've won before they took the team. They built it up. They won the championship now. It's their time to give that leadership back provide that for the for the younger players in the I Andersen Dolan's into Wagner's and the Lawson and so on that are coming through the organization so so we expect them to lead this group you know a team. The definition is a stable table abounded group of individuals. We weren't stable last year. It was it was up and down. Players were in and out so a main focus. This season is is to be stable and to be abounded group of individuals and Independent on achieving shared goal or outcome and this is an important thing independent and trying to get better every day you take your own play on.
