Is the amount of D supposed to make up for the lack of a proven G? What am I missing here?

How could Paddock trade Brown and not replace him adequately?

Like the size and physicality thse two will bring. Really noticed Hyman in the final last year, but his work was overshadowed by Bear and Ottenbreit. Like these trades a lot

Jeez, if we were going to give Gabrielle and Poteau a 2nd shot in a Pats uni, why didn't they try to get Zablocki back today?

Everyone knew changes were coming. Did they ever!

Goalie aside, I think JP did a good job. No real marquee players, but Steel and Mahura fit that bill already.

Everyone has loaded up. Going to be fun around here for the next couple of months.
