We didn't even get to the conference finals.
Minnesota is well behind what the Avs were at that point.
As far as all their shakeups, I personally believe that Nick Shultz for Tom Gilbert is a step backwards. I don't believe Gilbert is that good at all, I'm not a fan of his. The rest fo their D is a bit of a question mark.
Don't get me wrong, they've improved but it's not like these 2 players are going to make them immediate Stanley Cup contenders, it's not.
If you really think it does, you are putting WAYYYY too much emphasis on what 1 forward and 1 d-man can do on a team.
I'm talking about Seto etc; you're trying very hard to remain optimistic though, I'll give you that.
