You have Mattias Ohlund playing more minutes and for a bigger chunk of the season. Ohlund was the reason I took as many Bolts games in as I did, although I admit Lundin was pretty solid last year from what I saw. Just didn't realize he had been around so long.

I like the changes made to the back-end, and Yzerman is a God in my world, but saying a team that is counting on a guy like Mike Lundin as their top pairing guy has no use for Bieksa is just plain ignorant.
