look at how our defense played without Cowen and Gonchar. look at how our offense has played without Spezza. what do you think we really need?
Well, we do have Silf, Zib, Prince, Stone, etc coming along. I kinda agree with you though - we have the hardest pieces to find along the blueline and another top prospect in the system. A foundation of Karlsson, Cowen, Ceci is pretty damned good, and Wiercioch, Boro, Gryba seem like they will be more than adequate as bottom pair guys. Our D looks pretty good long term. We're about one or two minor pieces away and can always add there through FA as needed.

I think we set ourselves up where we can just sit back and take BPA and be done with it.
