Benn will miss some games, but the forward depth and quality is a major improvement. The goalie position is stronger and deeper with the addition of Nilstorp.

The D isn't anything to write home about, but they improved over last year IMO, and they almost made the playoffs with that D and much weaker forward group. Dillon will prove to be a significant improvement over Souray IMO. Benn and Fistric are essentially a wash, but you did get more mobility and puck skills with Benn which is important for GMJN. I'm not thrilled Benn is in the Top 6 or Rome should he prove to play more, but I'd take this team over last years with little hesitation.
