Winnipeg would either need to replace Pionk in the top 4, or commit to a rebuild.

If any one of those come to fruition, this is an ACCEPT.

Is Niederbach a good prospect? Cause if not I don't think Pionk is being sold off for just a 2nd, he's still a 2nd pair RHD and he had a pretty good playoffs.

As for whether this team can make the playoffs it's a maybe but not a firm one, would really need some things to go right, I'm not looking at this lineup and thinking it's a lock to make the playoffs.

I mean probably not, just adding pionk and killorn replace hronek and Bert so just a better backup, overpaid johansen and Martinez isn't going to be enough to make the playoffs.

We don't really need Martinez. Edvinsson just had surgery and will be out to start the season but Johansson should get some time at least to start the season.
I would say this team is better than last year but not by much.

Everything would have to go right and that rarely happens with Detroit. Losing Bert and Vrana to start last season killed their playoff hopes. Ned struggling didn't help. Walman was a nice surprise. Too bad we didn't have him to start the season.

Signings and trades are not the only thing that makes a team better or worse. Most important thing in a rebuild is the growth from the young guys - They are the future of the team.

And ppl often discount that part. They forget young guys can get better
