Overall, we're pretty happy with our off-season, as we wanted to add depth and not be too top-heavy with our big 3. I think our defense could use some work, but I'm super impressed with our offensive depth.

What do y'all think?
Any offseason that yields Huberdeau, Bjugstad and Rielly is a great way to kickstart a mini rebuild. Adding Clutterbuck+Ott to the team was a move I liked... they fit the Anaheim mold. Could care less for Hudler but he's a 50 point player, will probably fit well with the top line. Defense-wise you probably could of used a bigger Top 4 piece then Carle.. and Zanon had an atrocious post-season can't see him lasting much longer in a regular role.

IMO you'll likely see Hubs on the wing when he cracks an NHL lineup. Ott is a great C, might as well leave him there.

If Jagr ends up on the Nucks (doubtful with the travel). I can see him getting regular shifts with the Sedins. His board play is top notch, and Burrows has great chemistry with Kesler.
