Considering we were the highest scoring team last season with the most productive player in the world out of the line-up for most of it, defense should be our first priority. We should wait to see which ones pan out, particularly those closest to the NHL.
If you want an overhaul on D what would you want for Orpik?
I like your talk about a prospect swap but IMO if we don't trust Cole we shouldn't start with any other Rookie (not named Gormley) too
