Good point: plenty of teams look good on paper. But, the inexperience of the defense should be a clear concern, especially when a team will rely on a 2nd pair who have a total of less than 120 games between them. Tortorella has said it takes about 200 games at the NHL level before you really know what type of defenseman you have. It's going to be interesting to see how he handles the defense.
