Hopefully Jones can become half decent again too.

If Eakins is half as good of a coach as he's being advertised by the media, we get an upgrade there too.

So Nuge/Eberle healthy maybe get us into the 8-10 range, the other upgrades get us into the playoffs.

Also I would argue that Yakupov was adjusting to the NHL for most of the season and really came into his own at the end of the year, I bet there will be some carry over and he should average more points this year then last year.
