Well, since we're apparently not allowed to include Forsberg (for "everyone MUST be obligated to hate Poile as much as I do" reasons, or something equally petty)... Cullen and Stalberg together manage to exceed Erat's point totals just fine. And that's arguably a good thing considering the number of games Erat has habitually lost to injury.

The more I read about Cullen and watch clips of the guy the more I think he's legit top-6. Not top-3 by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm willing to say that my initial reaction to that signing ("what? how the hell?") was extremely off-base.

Stalberg has the potential to be a second-liner, although we won't know that for sure until he's given the ice time.

Dramatic offense increase? Nope. But is there an increase? Yes - marginal, but yes. Potential for even more increases depending on how the kids develop through the season? Tons.
