The D will still be pretty strong IMO, even with them likely losing Reinhart, Corbett and probably one of Sautner or Orban; guys like Irving, Mayo and Mills all have bright futures. Even up front, I've been impressed with the play of many of the young guys.
The way they're built, I find it hard to see them as a bottom feeder team again. They play a really strong team game, and don't really rely on star players to shoulder the load.
Well it might not be a rebuild like the Oilers have done it
… but it will still be a few years of treading water and being a bubble team until they can restock the cupboards.
They don't have anyone coming up who is close to a Samuelsson or Lazar.
