tyutin-purinton

unless some uber coach comes in who can really get them to play a solid defensive system comes, you'll forgive me for having doubts. poti cannot play on this team unless you get him a rock solid absolute stay at home defenseman. backman is more of a two way dman. you don't have to get a said dman from stl. but at least from on of the other trades.

You know that won't be the top 6 for next year.

Leetch, Poti deVries, Kaspairitis and Tytin will all be back there and in the other spot I expect them to go for a physical stay at home either through UFA or via trade.
