I hope Bratt isn't a Tedenby/Josephson type who starts very promising and then fades to ambiguity.

Doubt it he had more points last season then both of them had in their best seasons combined, IMO Bratt is going to take a major step forward this season

I thought the article was really spot on just about everything but noticed that as well.

I always say Butcher was a wonderful gift from the Hockey Gods; but Sami Vats is the teams best defenseman.

I think the biggest problem with our D is Nesreddine's system. It seems like some guys struggle with it. #BringBackStevens I don't mind how much Shero has transformed us into the mold of the Penguins; except when it comes to defense.

Makes sense as to why he has been signing depth D... couple smucks to split 15 min while EK covers the rest.

Also explains why he been so quiet.

Also maybe why Wood is not signed, perhaps Ott wants him signed before dealt.

Maybe comparing age/ceiling Butch is more valuable, but you are right, Vats was hands down our best D, put in every situation and thrived. Butch was great, albeit sheltered. Vats will likely be our best D again this season, tho I would love to see others continue to challenge for the #1 D title. Otherwise, I agree with everything in Todds Blog. Great read.
