Also there is a good chance we will now have reliable goal tending for the whole season instead of just half the season.
Tim Connolly is not a legit first line center. Lombadri may or may not play. John-Michael Liles is no better than our old puck-mover. Franson is a good pick-up, but he's only a slight upgrade on the guy he will replace.

Only minor improvement have been made to a team that missed the play-offs by 10 points.
