Dallas has a top 6 with size and speed and can rival any team in the NHL. The bottom 6 has the right amount of veteran presence, skill and grit. Thornton fills the role of enforcer that can play a regular shift on the 4th line and contribute a little bit offensively.
Dallas' defence is by far improved. The top pairing of Phaneuf and Greene can dent the boards with the opposition and Dion can definately rack up the points. The 2nd pairing is a great shut down pair and should produce well angainst the secondary lines. The 3rd pairing will flourish against 2nd-3rd lines of the west. Both Daley and Carle make a good 1st pass and can handle physical play. And Woywitka provides an inexpensive 7th dman with experience.
Dallas' goaltending has improved as well. Turco will return for 2 more seasons to play 45-50 games a year (a lighter workload can only help him regain his old form) and to tutor the next franchise goaltender, Bernier. Bernier will be ready for 30-35 games his 1st season and should be fighting for the no.1 position right out of the gates.
Most of the team is signed to long term contracts and most are under the age of 26. So this team should be together for many more years.
The Lankow buyout handcuffs us somewhat but that was the price to pay for Phaneuf and Backlund.
