Mildly better than at this point last season?

At this point last year Foligno, Tropp and McNabb weren't part of the discussion as potential roster players. They've also added Ott and Scott. Thats 5 players that weren't in the mix at this time last year.

They obviously still have McCormick, Kaleta, Regehr and Weber.

and the offseason is not over yet.

They're pretty middle of the pack since they rely upon kids and a select few vets (Ott, Regehr) who they had to acquire to lead them youth.

Don't you think you're getting a little nitpicky now?

You've wanted them to address toughness and become harder to play against. They've drafted Kassian, McNabb, Foligno, Girgensons, Kea, Nelson in the last few years. They've signed McCormick to a 3 year deal, They've trade for Ott and signed Scott. Why is it a bad thing that its kids and vet acquistions? What other way should they have done it?

Do they have more to do? Some but I'm getting the sense that it will never be enough.
