No question. I just had high hopes for Zuccarello, which I did not for Pouliot. Brassard has not kept his level of play where it was last year with us. I forgot to mention him but it has been noticeable.

For MDZ, I have made no secret that I am a big fan of John Moore. I'd bump his minutes and bring in Conor Allen as the 6th defenseman.

Still, there is an asterisk attached. One of my concerns about AV was that Torts system may have coddled our blueliners and made them appear better than they are. It could be that guys like Moore and Girardi looked as good as they did because of the system we played. Keeping that in mind, management has to be cautious.
