Defense depth is also an improvement.

2010-11: Streit, Wisniewski, Eaton, Mottau, Jurcina, MacDonald, Martinek, Hillen, Gervais

Having Roloson greatly improves the team in net...compared to Dubielewicz in 2007.
What about Dubi's poke check!

The isles have some impressive prospects...I just don't think the what 14 other Eastern Conference teams will just roll over and play dead. In conclusion, just because they have impressive prospects doesn't mean other teams won't get better as well.

They might have a team that could be a playoff hopeful but it's more of coaching and team chemistry more than just some very hyped prospects.

Isles will be GOOD in 3 years, especially if Dipi is healthy. Top 10 team in the league.

I'm also a little disappointed that no one has said "Hamilton" or "Kansas City" or something. Always fun when threads like this attract *******s.

Considering Jumbo Joe became a poster in 2009...he is post is pointless once again. He knows nothing about hockey and nothing about his own team. His team is moving no where again...treading water like always.

Hey Jumbo...what are your thoughts today on your first round pick...seems to change a lot.

Plus I cant' see Jumbo Joe either.

They'll need a new owner(s) before every doing very much.

Snow deserves a lot of credit for what he has done with what he has.

You're right...Wang will eventually demand that Garth sell off Tavares, Okposo, Bailey, and Neiderreiter...cuz he's CRAZY!!!!

Look out! Here comes Wang, throwing out another 10-15 year contract that other team's eventually ended up dishing out!

Yes, Wang's the problem:
a) because he doesn't spend enough,
b) because he spends too much, and
c) because OTH is certain he's a master criminal.

Because Brock Nelson is another player than Frans Nielsen.



As for the question, I still see a lot of questionmarks.

Not every prospect pans out and I see line-ups like every prospect will succeed. That wont happen.


I think defensively they are very thin. Yes, there's Hamonic and De Haan but I doubt they will become top defensemen.

So... signing some names would be the way to go, as well as addressing it at the draft this year?

Yup. Excellent point - no team plays in a vacuum. One more reason Wang can't expect to ignore major free agents forever.

Hopefully in the playoffs. If not please deal Tavares so his career isn't wasted.
