That's the issue, Levitate...

there are a buch of "ifs" and it does make the upcoming season questionable. The good thing is that much of the future wasn't suffered. Toots is gone and he may be missed on the blueline in years to come, but the top for signed for the next few years (including Staal and Girard) aren't all that bad and they took a flyer on a kid who could be a real star and who's put up numbers. But again, there are a lot of "ifs" when talking about the coming season, and there still are a lot of "ifs" when talking about the future.

Levitate - is the team really more well-rounded? Last year's team seemed pretty well-rounded. You had some grit in Dubi, Avery, Cally, the fourth line and even Dawes as well as on defense. The defense seemed pretty good too. Guys who can block shots, take the body here and there, etc. And then you had your skilled guys and vets in Jagr, Straka, Gomez and Drury and Shanny (who did tally more than 20 goals last season). So compared to this coming season, that doesn't seem all that un-rounded, if that's a word.
