On defense, we lack a true no.1, but have 3 of a top 4, an aging Jovo as our no. 5 and a couple of AHLers to put in front of a talented, but inconsistent rookie goalie, in Markstrom backed up by a fading Clemmer.

On paper, this is the worst team in the NHL, bare none. It is pretty much the same team that lost almost all of its games the last third of the season and finished with the worst record in the League.

What is the reason for optimism?
I know I can only mention one team but we're not better than Calgary on paper? Come on man.

Other mentionable teams: Winnipeg, Dallas and Colorado.
