Unless the defense is addressed in one way or another, it's going to be the same result.
Meszaros was hurt a lot of the season, yes, but he was awful the first half of the season regardless. Grossmann is a good addition, but he's not going to put you over the top in any sense. He's a supporting character. This team needs a legitimate #1 defenseman. Until that happens, it's going to be just what you saw last season.
Yes we have a very good young core of forwards to be excited about, and to develop, but without that defensive cog, it is an irrelevant luxury.
yes i agree, this team needs defense and a forward to replace jagr, somehow i think the fo will address both through trades or FA,
the fo is definitely going to do that this summer, jvr has to go for this to work one way or another he's the only piece.
i smell a big trade coming probably not until the draft when they got pronger.
