I'm still convinced that acquiring Heatley will ultimately prove to be a major mistake, but I think DW did an incredible job rebuilding the bottom six this offseason. Nichol, Ortmeyer, and Malhotra are the kind of heart and soul players that can provide a ton of spark in the postseason, and the development of McLaren, Staubitz, and especially McGinn have given this team much needed depth.

Goc, Plihal, etc. were all soulless plugs who were decent enough at playing competent defensive hockey, but provided little offensive or emotional benefits.
