I had to put in Sykora even though he is unsigned. I have never seen Barch play but I believe that his experience puts him over Tedenby and Pesonen.
The defense is what will get the team through the season. Just like last year, there is no one guy, but six or seven guys that can hold their own. If Salvador, Greene, Fayne, and Volchenkov all play around the same level as last year and Zidlicky and Larsson chip in twenty points each the team should be in the playoff hunt.
I don't expect anything special from the goalies but I expect them to not get blown out of the water.
The defense will make or brake this team and Tallinder should be traded for a veteran left wing.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
Stopped reading at "abysmal." You realize that forward depth was the reason we got to the Stanley Cup finals, right? And you're missing Ryan Carter.
