Yeah, I agree - with Pronger, we had a shot. Without, I see us as a borderline playoff team in the 6-9 range. I don't hold out much hope due to our lack of defensive depth, so I won't be upset by losses this year. I don't know how to remedy the situation. With Kimmo retiring soon and with no other solid defensive prospect or signings in the future, I don't know how the team will compete for a Cup this year or anywhere in the future short of obtaining some serious defensemen. And since these D-men usually get scooped up by their own teams (Weber for example), I don't see how we get any short of a trade.
