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.
I think the real question is are we better than the team who just got stomped out in the 1st round:

ADD:
Sutter
Glass
Despres

SUBTRACT:
Staal
Michalek
Sullivan
Park

I think even if your very optimistic, it's hard to say we are much better (which we will need to be) if we are better at all (I feel we are slightly worse).

I think the game is changing too... I really don't think we are going to see as many in-season trades/deadline deals. Good talent is harder to come by. A few years ago, a veteran scorer like Guerin/Roberts got a mid round pick. These days those players are getting 1st's/top prospects. And the good long term options are getting locked up much more often than previous years. That's why offseasons are so critical now... Whether it be through trades or UFA signings.
