now the Pessimistic side.......I will gladly agree with your opinion the DEFENSE has been improved ALOT. AND defense get's you Championships. However, I don't buy into your offense optimisim......Yes Weber will help the PP, but Jagr helped tremendously also. Remember there are 54 POINTS your are talking about in 72 games. And although Weber should be counted on for a number of points, you also need to remove the 40 some points that Carle contributed both even strength and on the PP.
Schenn and Courtier (if Vorcek is gone), will have to shoulder the load of points to be made up. So what others are picking up the pace?
I do believe if their defense is tighter, which with Weber it will be the offense is NOT the focal point which as someone pointed out, they won't have to score 5 goals to win a game.
Now another monkey wrench.......what if Nashville matches? Same Philosophy?
