They're easily a top 10 team IMO.
They also lost their top defenseman in Zbynek Michalek and one of their top scoring forwards (and one of the fastest players in the league) in Matthew Lombardi.

While they did add Ray Whitney and Eric Belanger, I think they are really going to hurt from the loss of Michalek, who led all skaters in ice time.
