Well first and foremost, Martin is a completely different player than last year. Not sure if you know Shero asked Paul if he would like traded for a change of scenery, Paul said he wanted to stay and prove his worth. Well what ever he did in the off season has worked wonders. He might be our best defender this season.
The implementation of Despres and Bort so early in the year will help out in their development, and by no means have they been disappointments. Good solid minutes.
Niskanen, Letang, Orpik, and Englland have been more than servicable.
So all in all, the change in Martin's game, and the two young guys (Bort/Despres) have hopefully provided the upgrade needed. We shall see thou.
