I don't believe it's being overblown at all, i don't think it's time to ring the bell and sound the alarm either. We lost 30 assists and a guy who plays 20+ minutes a game, Our Defense struggled in the playoffs and for a good part of the regular season. We always seemed to be looking for an answer on D.
  • Coburn is our most steady defensemen, never seems to get hurt, but his offense has dropped off as well.
  • Mez's back is a concern.
  • Schenn needs to have a huge comeback year after having a bad year in Toronto. Although he did put up 275 hits.
  • Lilja sucks.
  • Gus gets hit hard almost every single game, needs playing time could potentially be a 3/4 pairing guy in a few years, not an immediate help though.
  • Full year with Grossman is going to be a huge plus. However he's not a puck moving guy, don't expect him to pick up the offense.
