I've listened to quite a few Yzerman interviews this season. I have zero doubt that he is going to take care of the long term solution in net and revamp the defense. He didn't hold back any punches in talking about Rolosons age being a limiter.

I think he trades for a goalie, re-signs Brewer, and goes after the top tier free agent defensemen. Ohlund and Kubina aren't going anywhere, they have NMC's. But the speed of the defense is a major weakness, so for the other four or five guys, Yzerman is going to target faster skaters. I think this pushes a guy like Ehrhoff to the very top of the free agent list and a guy like Pitkanen a little further down.
