That said, our forward group is still better.

From last go around we lost Drury and Langenbrunner but gained more mature versions of Kyle Okposo and most importantly Max Pacioretty.
You have the mentality that we were so close in 2010 so all we have to do is get a little better, if that's what we are going to do we won't even medal. We need to create the best team for 2014. Pavelski(and Erik Johnson) are not the best we have to offer.

BTW Kesler, Parise, Brown, Oshie, Callahan and Backes are all better defensively than Pavelski.
