Jokinen was not on the team the whole year. Frolov far surpasses anything Kotalik or Higgins brought.

The Improvement we will see from Anisimov and MDZ will far surpass any dropoffs that might occur (We have one of the younger teams in the league, Prospal is the only age concern)

Barring a Gaborik injury or poor Lundqvist play, this is a playoff team.

side note- the people whining about this signing hurting our 2011 draft pick need to cease and desist.
