my point is you cant pick things out of a vacuum and make comparisons that arent legit.

our roster today is, other than Suter, the same or better(Gaustad>Smithson) than the start of last season, and we were the #4 seed and realistically the #2 or 3 team in the WC.... and that was without Rads or AK....

the Blackhawks are still weak in goal, and added nobody, the Wings lost as much on defense as we did, the Blues added nobody.. how that adds up to "the only central team that looks remotely as bad on paper is Columbus" is mind boggling to me...

I think we are as likely as any team to win the central....
