Not sure what you're trying to say here. But the mere fact you mentioned, correctly, the porous defense proves my assertion that now is a different situation from when Gomez and Drury were signed.

Just shows how little the experts' opinions are worth.
Yea, but i'm talking about a player who would have definitely had an authoritative opinion and voice in the locker room.

And our defense could regress? Sauer is a question mark. Del Zotto had 1 good year, what if he doesn't put the same amount of effort into preparing this offseason as he did last year? Staal could get another concussion and we might have a bunch of fill ins playing at any point. Clearly I don't hope that this is the case, even if it were to prove my point, but I'm just saying it's not as far off as youre making it seem.

And yes, I'm hoping we remain under the radar with them this upcoming season so that we don't have all these ridiculous expectations.
