People are confabulating Team Defense with the strength of the Defensive Corps. They could very easily repeat their team defense effectiveness, but there is room for an upgrade on the defensive side in the top pairing (Cola's spot). Ironically, the place I think this would impact the most is on the offensive side....as the Blues would get production from the quick transition, the ability to hold the puck in, the freedom for Pietro to pinch in more readily.

So...I believe the Blues can be as good next season with what they have, but that doesn't mean the blueline can't stand an upgrade.
