The biggest problem going forward which you point out is the lack of a #1 d-man after this season. That is going to be the biggest issue. Without that d-man, I don’t think the team has any real shot at the Cup, unless they change their overall style of play.
Plus no team is going to trade their #1 D-man, unless they are going to be a UFA.
My thoughts exactly. Looking at the past 6 SC winners they either have a #1 or an elite pairing, Doughty, Chara, Keith/Seabrook, Gill/Scuderi, Lidstrom, Pronger AND Niedermayer. Weber is the only guy I would gut part of this team for, scoring never seems to be the issue.
