If nothing changes - right the management off. If they do what is needed and bring in 3-4 quality D, without impacting the core of the forwards or goaltenders - then they will have a good team.
That is what I am watching for.
I agree with what you are saying but it will be tough to get 3-4 quality defensmen in one off season with out giving up some of the core. I know they have the OHL Draft and Import draft but at most that would be two players. Erie would be forced to give up some quality to get quality in return. They have at least one forward that could be moved and generate a good return, and I dont think it would change the teams outlook up front a whole lot.
