I think the defense will be adequate if not good next season. We shored up on that front by sacrificing offense when we moved Carter for JJ. Some say we should move Methot, but that means you have to add a shutdown guy, because imo Moore and Savard aren't both ready yet.

The 2 big holes as I see it:

We need a couple top 6 guys badly, not super stars, but 60 point type guys that can score 20+ goals consistently. I do not think Yakupov qualifies in this capacity in 2012-2013...do they even know the extent of his last concussion? Atkinson? maybe, if he starts finding the back of the net. In any case we need to go get some scoring talent.

We need a goalie (or we roll the dice on Mason again next season).
