We lost Stuart, Lidstrom, and Hudler. We added Tootoo, Samuelsson, and Brunner.

Going into the offseason we needed an additional top 6 forward, a top 2 defenseman, and a pk specialist. None of those holes were plugged.

Our team was a 5th seed team who was dominated in the first round last year.

We got worse. Unless our rookies step up in a big way, and/or if Babcock is able to rally this team in a big way, next year will likely only continue the signs of regression we've seen from our roster the gradually over the last three seasons.

I predict we'll finish as a 6th seed. Behind Chicago, St. Louis, and possibly Nashville, depending how they do with the loss of Ryan Suter.
