Well, basically this is the year for two veterans, Erat and Legwand, to prove they can still play even better, stay healthy, and show their deals were justified. Can they do that at their age? I don't know, but Poile seems to be banking on it.
And the year for Radulov to make more forward progress on offense. He should be past the Trots two-way play doghouse/wall that some prospects never get through.
If they do that. And our third lines are upgraded, as it seems they have a decent chance to be (Not sure who loses spots. But I'm trying to be optimistic), then we could be a playoff team and be better.
The defense should be better. They have to live up to the hype of course.
No question we can't feed on the central, as it seems everybody not named Detroit should be better. But if we're better, we can make up for it elsewhere.
