Identity should not be an issue. Cally, Staal, Hank, Richards, and Girardi are still here. This team will not lack identity. Torts won't allow that to happen.
My concern is center depth and the 6th defender. How can we not worry about Stu Bickel? I understand he might not be that big of a concern with the other 5 we have right now are good. My concern is the return of Mike Sauer. Is the organization relying on him coming back and going with Bickel or whoever breaks camp as the #7 playing until he is healthy?
To harp on the center, I believe that if Miller is not ready for the NHL, they will go after someone that can play center at the deadline. Having the depth where it is right now isn't terrible, as long as they can get through it. At least our centers can play the defensive end of the ice. If they were offensive guys and weren't good at it, I'd be even more worried, but Step, Rich, Boyle, and Halpern can play that side of the puck.
