Ok, so this forward corps.. believe it or not is an UPGRADE on the roster that landed the Vancouver Canucks in 2nd place and got us deeper into the playoffs then almost anyone projected. Last season we were fueled by Parenteau and Purcell as our top producers, with a strong d-core and Pavelec chipping in massive support. Add Lupul and Burrows, and likely point jumps from players like Pavelski, Connolly, Boedker and we feel we've got a deep roster of mid-tier forwards. I've shown that this is more then enough when you have a strong defense and goaltending situation.
Last season our D was without Weber until the trade deadline.. we had Pietrangelo, OEL, Gonchar, Souray as our Top 4.. fast forward to today where we have the best D-corps in the league. You have to dress 6 D every week... we plan on using those spots to dress 6 top-flight blueliners.
Pavelec was a fantasy stud last season, we've brought him back, expecting more from him as Winnipeg grows as a team as does he. But he will be pushed for starts from Boston's undisputed #1 in Rask. Two goaltenders that while "young" will bring massive amounts of starts and fantasy points.
