Yes, I think one SOLID top six two-way wing and we are ready to go. That either moves Dupuis down to third line, or fills a huge void with Malkin and Neal.
Our defense is fine. Martin is back to being the guy we signed from NJ. He might be our steadiest guy this year. Add in the fact he is becoming more of an offensive force and has looked very good as the QB of the PP in Letang's absence ... that has helped.
Despres, Bortuzzo have gotten important minutes and have looked solid when they were in. Despres and Letang look to be a very good pairing for the future.
Defense, we are much better than last. The only weakness absent a need for a top six wing and I'm talking about a good one, not spare part, is lack of discipline. If guys like Malkin and Neal would stop the retaliating or showing frustration, they would be on the ice four more minutes per game than in the box.
Then again, if Bylsma would make adjustments throughout the game, we might have something special.
