Players like Potter\Barker were unknowns for us when we added them to our roster a couple years ago. Hoping for the best but the unknown Dmen we have added for bottom pairing might not be much better.
Calling Perron gritty is like calling Yakupov gritty. We really did not address the size issue in top 6.
We replaced Paajaarvi with Perron, Whitney with Ference, Khabi with Labarbabra and Horcoff with Gordon.
Peckham + Fistric for Belov + Grebeshkov.
I have us fighting for the playoffs in March but missing it by ~5 pts in the end.
That's fair. The only caveat I would have is that the coach is different. Our power play is going to be dynamite. Our PK had been pretty respectable. But its the 5v5 system that really sunk us last season. If Eakins can get that to even a league average level, we should be much improved.
