defense: if mccrimmon ditches zulyniak and keeps webb, there are going to be A LOT of angry people.
But look at the defense we can return:
zulyniak, boyle, cann, yeo, louis, lenoski, day
then for goalies, you'll definately see plante back, and i wouldnt be too suprised to see Mike Nichol traded for a top 3 type forward.
But yeah, look at who we lost
Monych, Stone, Fehr, Konsorada, Sindel, Later eeeeeeep
Im also quite excited to see if Keith Aulie can crack the team.......huge Dman even if he is young........I think that Burki has the most potential of anyone on the team for forwards....dittmer i thought had lots till last years fall out........pretty private talks about what happened with him......ive heard rumours but thats just rumours to this point.
Courchene could be a decent sniper if he would hit the net......he has slick moves and speed just needs accuracy.
