OUT: Daniel Alfredsson (signed with Detroit), Jakob Silfverberg (traded to Anaheim), Andre Benoit (signed with Colorado), Peter Regin (signed with NYI), Guillaume Latendresse (UFA), Mike Lundin (UFA)

IN:  Bobby Ryan (from Anaheim), Clarke MacArthur (UFA), Joe Corvo (UFA)

ARE THEY BETTER TODAY THAN THE END OF THE SEASON?  In terms of talent, yes.  The team and the city are still getting over the shock of Alfredsson signing in Detroit.  Ryan brings a legitimate top line player, and MacArthur has to potential to bring some solid secondary scoring.  Corvo is an interesting case, but is a better gamble than Lundin or Benoit on the blue line.
