And even if we do sign Marian, we may very well still score fewer goals than we did last year. Now an improved defense can help...but someone is going to have to put the puck in the net!
I disagree. If Jagr goes, we shift from the Euro style game we were playing last year to a more north american game, if he comes back, we have what we had last year.
