Koivu, Bouchard, Cullen, Brodziak, Heatley, Setoguchi, Clutterbuck, Spurgeon, Falk, Scandella, Stoner and Prosser all played a substantial part of their season with each other and in the system. Gilbert, while being a later addition, had 20 games in it.

The new guys? Two great players, two highly touted rookies and a couple of 4th liners. All of our additions are huge upgrades on their replacements.

Would a training camp and preseason been helpful? Absolutely, but some people seem like they think we are the only team that switched out a few parts this year.
keep being irked--the team looks nothing like it did last year. How many key players did anyone else in the division change over? You'll notice that neither Cullen nor Brodziak, nore Scandella, nor Bouchard are playing where they were last year. it's not a few "parts" we switched.
