[QUOTE] To be successful, the B's roster has to be better than they were last year
as we have not improved our roster as yet. So will the players have matured and improved, that is why they play the season, we will have to tune in and see.

Uh, you do realize that they WON the cup, right? What more do they need to do, "to be successful"?
As far as this year goes, I think Corvo & Caron can replace the contributions of Ryder & Kaberle, at about 1/3 the cap hit.
As stated by others, the projected improvement of the B's young players, should also help.
The only question mark for me, is 2nd line RW. The only FA that could have played there was Selanne, and he was never going to leave the Ducks.
That left, having to trade for a player, which may have left a hole elsewhere.
Every team has question marks. Chiarelli has proven, he knows what it takes to build a winner.
I'll let him worry about who's wearing the jerseys. Me, I'm just gonna sit back, and enjoy the season, as....THE DEFENDING STANLEY CUP CHAMPS!!!
