Bob the Goalie / Pav

The CBJ also have ridiculous defensive depth...

If Foligno or Brassard can break out along the lines of what Wheeler did, these guys won't be that far off.


I would rather have our core group, but I don't the the CBJ are going to be that bad going forward.
not to get off topic here but i very much agree. add in the jackets extraordinarily underrated blueline talent and I'd be surprised ( i won't quite say shocked) to see them finish bottom 5 this year....now that's not exactly glowing praise, but i'm one of the few that does see their team as better this year then last year, even with the loss of Nash.

As for our own prospect depth, it really is waay to early to claim that we've made any improvements what so ever besides avoiding the possible(not even garaunteed) scenario of putting Schiefele in the league last year and him only getting 20-25 points in sheltered minutes.
