Jesus, if I look at that description without knowing the team you'd think it was Anaheim...
Our D is going to be fine, we didn't just add Suter we added Parise, we have some skilled forward coming up and Scandella rebounded in the 2nd half, plus he was one of the leaders for rookie TOM. also regarding our goaltending and mind you this is with a weak defense as you claim

Player Name GP GAA W L T Pct
Matt Hackett 12 2.38 3 6 0 0.921
Niklas Backstrom 46 2.43 19 18 7 0.919
Josh Harding 34 2.62 13 12 4 0.917

and these numbers include when our team was missing 3 top 6 forwards and couldn't do much on defense to get the puck up ice with the majority of dman being weak at transition, we had Spurgeon other then him the other dman we had were bad at getting puck out of zone.

Schultz, Zannon, Zidlicky, were dog crap awful, and we had no Koivu or Butch to help out instead we used guys like Warren Peters as a top 6 forward....

With even an AVG defense our goal tending is going to be solid, now this year we also have BNTG (Bloomington Native Tom Gilbers) what ever his oiler days were he was good on transitioning the play and playing big minutes, Suter, Brodin (great at defense and transitioning) Scandella and Spurgeon, so yea our D will be just fine as well as our goal tending
