I don't have an issue with Staois, he's a capable depth defenseman. I'm still waiting for an upgrade though. Staois is replacing Martinek - that's a downgrade any way you care to measure.

I'm going to enjoy the team regardless, because there are a lot of players I like, that will improve this year.

But it's looking like another tough year for this team.
To me Staios, Eaton, Jurcina and Mottau are all place keepers for younger D-men to develop properly in AHL. We could see an upgrade as far as a trade at some point but i do believe the D will be ok and this team should not have trouble scoring goals. You also have to believe the goaltending will be fine as we have enough guys to have one emerge. I'm optomistic about this team, i believe a playoff contending team is easily the expectation with a possible higher than 8th see team as where they could be if things fall right.
