Defense is a real concern cuz there is no real Number 1 and only Weber will be available. The defense we have now in Coburn and Mesz and Grossman and Schenn would do real well playing behind JUST ONE ALL STAR dman, if we can get one. Even if we lose the best one of those four listed, that's be acceptable to get an all star. (BTW I deliberately did NOPT list Timo cuz he's old and gone after next season)
My kingdom for an all star Dman!!
As for forwards:
LESS of a problem cuz you said: 'WE ARE RELYING on one or more of Schenn, Couts, Read, Voracek, or Simmonds to take big steps forward.
OK guys: we traded two all stars (who helped a team win a Cup) to get FOUR of those forwards: thus, they damn well BETTER take steps forward!
ON FORWARDS, we NEED to RELAX this year cuz NEXT YR brings a BUMPER CROP incl FAs like Perry and Getzlaf (and others as well).
DONT BLOW YOUR brains out to get a LOSER like Semin or over priced Nash this year.
ALL of: Schenn, Couts, Simmonds, Voracek WILL IMPROVE this yr, and that will carry us tl next yr when we can hopefully sign G and Harts long term and also grab a couple of all star forwards from other teams
