The focus of this off season has been on the defence and Bryan said he would add a top-six forward and he subtracted one instead. Instead he added depth to the forwards, Is he expecting Gonchar to lead the team in scoring this year? Is Alfy expected to score 30 goals? Is Regin expected to score 30? Is Fisher expected to stay on what for him was a scoring tear?
A defence that will readily join the rush leaving frequent odd man rushes against suspect goaltending, IMO needs to be accompanied by a high-powered offence if it is to be successful. Can you argue with the fact that the defensive part of our defence got downgraded when Anton left?
You can always say "Well, there is no cap space to get a top-six forward... so whaddya gonna do?" Teams that need to make a deal, create the necessary cap space. So I'm left wondering if we did enough in this off season. What do you think?... Time will answer that question.
