Well. . inertia is a powerful thing, especially amongst those who don't do massive amounts of homework.
Hell, there are plenty of beat writers around North America who still write about the Wild from a Lemaire perspective. And they *ought* to know better.
Our D is suspect. We really need another quality D-man. But there are lots of team with worse holes.
Then there are the sabremetrics types. They'll always downgrade us, and bray that that the 2nd half of last year proves their case --conveniently ignoring how central injuries were.
I will admit, it's going to be about the D this year. We can backfill from Houston quite credibly on forwards. . . .but D will tell the tale.
