I don't really see that as decent speed. It's spread around the forward lines and each line has a bit of an albatross on it.
Turco with an improved defense appeals to me simply because I know what he can do, after all, he did outplay Nabby in O8 in the second round. Most noticably that triple overtime game that sent us packing. Turco is by no means an elite goalie, but he is smart and does not rely on pure reflex like Nabby does. Sure Dallas pulled him this year, but look at the Stars defense, it is atrocious.

At least half of our forwards have some speed, perhaps if the lines were tweaked it could be balanced out a little bit more.
