If the cap goes down we will be sitting pretty. If it doesn't, we will still be one of the top teams in the east.
As far as not filling out the top 6 with guys, I don't know how any of you expected that to happen immediately after moving Staal.
It is unreasonable to think we can completely redesign the team in one off-season.
How is adding a top 6 winger "completely re-designing the team"? I love Shero but he's not exempt of criticism.
And I don't see how we are a better team going into this season than we were last year... unless you were expecting Sid to never come back in play. We essentially lost Staal and Michalek and gained Sutter, a 4th liner in Glass (and we are hoping that Despres can fill in for Michalek). Anyway you slice I don't see how this is a "better" team than the one that started last year."
