What if Henrik gets seriously injured? Richards? Gaborik?

We shouldn't simply ignore the regular season. I have no doubt this season will have its hardships like any other. And i'm not yet positive I prefer this club to the 06-07 or 07-08 rosters.

They did just about everything I wanted this offseason getting Rupp and Richards, still have to get Prospal to consolidate it though.
It's funny because we're basically the opposite type of club now. Even though we played "defensive hockey" under Renney, we were weak defensively with fantastic frontloaded scoring but weak secondary scoring. Now we theoretically have very good secondary scoring, a slightly weaker (but hopefully still good) top line, and good defense under Tort's safe is death style.
