So out would be Hannan, Blum, Halishuk, Erat and SK

In would be Forsberg, Barkov, top 4 defenseman, Beck, Ekholm.
I think we may be a top 4 team in our conference ... our D with Weber, Klein, emergence of Josi ... hoping for Ekholm (I liked the way he played compared to the other kids in the 4 spot) to continue to progress & a patchwork of what'd be our bottom pairing

Chicago are the champs, Minnesota may be better, Saint Louis may be better ... the rest is a crap shoot, imo
