And Lander will do a fine job. No worries there.
I hope you are wrong but I am scared you are right. I think we are realistically between 8-12. If we acquire center who can play top6 minutes we can be in the range 10-15.

Of course if guys like Joensuu and Jones overachieved, Gagner is able to play defensive game too, Yak will avoid sophomore slump, Hemsky scores 65 pts, we add a piece or two during the season...

Who knows? Team has a lot of potential. I would take a risk and add center. I would even trade Hemsky and prospect for Paul Stastny. I want to see SC play off games again. ( I have seen only one home game of Chicago since 2006 and I eally felt bad because own team was not on the ice)
