I'm scared of the day we don't have a back-end with someone who can force the issue. It makes things much harder on our forwards, and the entire Laviolette system, which is predicated on forechecking pressure and puck possession much like the Detroit model, goes right down the drain.
Why don't we all start blaming Rinaldo for not being Lindros?
Gus isn't as good as a puck mover as people think around here. Can he pass? Sure. But he doesn't have much poise when the puck is on his stick. If we are hoping Gus will take the reigns as a top 4 d-man then we are in serious trouble.
