IMO, we need all the goals we can get.
We need a guy that can move the puck on the back end (Brodin would have been nice). Spurgeron is a smurf and should have limited minutes simply because the guy won't be able to go against some of the biggest forwards in the league. Gilbert is a solid two day defenseman. Suter is solid two-way defenseman. And Scandella is a mystery but possibly two-way defenseman. But most of them don't add a lot to the offense. We need a guy that can move the puck other than Brodin.

Parise will chip in 25-30 goals. If we can get some more production out of our backend as well...

Minnesota had a whopping 14 goals from the blue line last year.

Spurgeon and Scandella led the way with 3 a piece, Kampfer and Zannon both had 2, Falk, Stoner, Schultz, Prosser all had 1.

14 goals.

We need more production out of our blue line this year.

BTW if Koivu stays healthy, he could chip in 20 goals.
