And the forward core will be deeper especially in the bottom 6 as there will be a lot of legitimate competition for the 12 starting spots. IMO the only areas where we could project the team performing worse are in net since Hank is a year older and behind the bench (for those Torts fans).

And as a young team, our core guys are developing each year and not declining. Richards is the only core guy on the wrong side of this prime and it would be hard to be worse than last year.
Can't project that either - Hank is not at that point in his career where you can project decline in performance due to age.
