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.
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.
