It nearly worked, and barring Hamhuis' injury, would have worked IMHO. We are committed to this way though, and it's not the worst. I don't think we will be mediocre, but this group might not be able to finally get us over the hump. A lot depends on Edler's play this year.
On some teams , any one of our 4 would be a top D man
