I think Adam Foote is the glue of the defense. I'm not sure how much they will miss Devo. I think it depends how Skrastins is able to adapt to the system and how much the Avs get out of the sixth and seventh defensemen. If the defenders can stay relatively healthy, than I would say no, but Blake and Foote are known to get knicked up occasionally.

I wish de Vries would have stayed, but after he turned down the multi-year contract offer from the Avs a year ago, the writing was on the wall. Clearly, de Vries was looking for a big pay day. One thing you have to realize about Lacroix is that he will pay his star players well, but he wont overpay for second and third tier players.
