Second line center is still a big concern...Johansson can't hack it at this point, and if they lose Semin it's a decent blow to their overall offensive depth despite his inconsistencies. Kuznetsov won't be over for several more years...

I do like their defense though and they should be set in goal even if Holtby struggles a bit next season, Neuvirth should be there to pick up the slack.

They have good role player depth and Backstrom and Ovechkin will remain threats almost every game

Whether or not they are better depends in how consistently they play next year, I think. They should easily be a playoff team again, probably win the division, but can't be so wildly inconsistent if they want to do so. Coaching could play a big role in that...if Hunter comes back they might benefit from the continuity but a new coach could mean some struggles adjusting
