ARE THEY BETTER TODAY THAN THE END OF THE SEASON?  No.  They lost a lot of depth and will be a much younger defense corps when they take to the ice in September.  They lost a key piece of each line and a top 4 defenseman, and one of the best backup goalies in the league. They are still very good, but have come back to the pack a little.
