Why? Do you see that defense? It'll be the best we've ever had and one of the best in the league. Or it COULD be.

Teams have won big playing defensive style hockey before. In fact, Trotz loves that. And if Sullivan can stay healthy a full season? And what if Wilson plays well for much of the season? What if Wardy produces again? (And with Ward's style I see him as being consistent.)

No, I'm not going to panic. Too bad we haven't done well at filling the farm system with offensive talent though. Because, sure, we could use punch there, and a good scoring free agent.

But it's not panic time. It's just another rebuilding year. What worries me is that in couple years even what little offensive talent we have there will fall off. Maybe Arnott and Sullivan anyway. So we are "rebuilding" without an end in sight, although maybe with Rads coming back someday.... So it is true I hope we pick up someone decent. As, with another scorer, next season could actually be pretty good.
