I was more referring to people who wanted two top 6 wingers. Which is anyone who wants a top 6 without Dupuis on it. Going from a team build with 3 centers and fill in wings to a team built with two great centers surrounded by great talent is the intended re-design.

we didn't have Sid most of last season. We will this time. Sid, Sutter, Despres, Glass and Tangradi is a better group than Staal, Letestu, Michalek, Park and Sullivan. Oh and Vokoun. We probably take the division if we have Vokoun instead of Johnson last year.

Like I said, we will need to make moves to get to where we were in the playoffs. At least on paper. This team should have a better regular season record than last year's team did though. Considering a game or two could be the difference between Philly/NJ and Ottawa/Florida in the first round, that's a pretty big deal.
