You see any drastic change in the defensive construct this year compared to seasons past? I certainly don't. It's the usual suspects, with a little youth mixed in...that's all.

If anything, people thought their PP woes would be solved by the additions of Jagr and Whitney and that alone could be the "good enough" factor, but that hasn't really helped at all and obviously, not enough.

My question is does anyone still have real hope and legit reasoning behind it?
Not really. They're not going to be a playoff team with the current status-quo on the blueline that lacks a legitimate first pairing- something that will not be addressed this off-season. They could possibly squeak in at the 8th spot and get bounced in round 1 in 4-5 games at best.
