The negativity brigade likes to bring up how D & Z are one year older, but so are Tatar and Nyquist. Even though we didn't get a top-6 star forward like many of us (myself included) wanted, we're still a deeper team with the additions of Tootoo and the youngsters. Brunner is a total wildcard, but there's always the chance that he's legit.
The 6th man in our top 6 is a pure wild card. Might as well call that spot 'the joker'. As far as the depth comment. I wouldn't say we've got depth, but we've got warm bodies. I'll wait and see how the kids produce before saying we're a deep team.
