This is an article to start a discussion on which team has the best defence core. I have broken it down to the top 10 defence cores and some people may not completely agree. This is not listed in any order.
The big word in Chicago has been turmoil. There has been lots of it this summer and it will be lots for a young team to take in.
There were mistakes made in filing qualifying offers. The GM was fired. conveniently the son of the top hockey guy was hired, their leading scorer was lost via free agency and he spoke out about it, one of their young stars got arrested, they signed a controversial contract that belittles the CBA, major cap problems lie ahead for the team and they just lost a key role player for the season. Talk about tough going.

Once again the Philadelphia Flyers are poised to take a run at the Stanley Cup without a top goaltender.
The talent and depth the team possesses is terrific as their lineup is lined with star power. But its new goaltender Ray Emery who must deliver in goal for the team to meet their aspirations. After being away from the league for a year, Emery attempts to resurrect his career in the city of brotherly love.
There may not be much love for this team if again the neglect of the most important position in the game costs this franchise once again a chance to compete.
This is a note to let everyone know that the UPP will be back again this year. It is expected to be released on Friday.
Repeating as cup champions has been no easy task. But the Pittsburgh Penguins will attempt to be the 2nd team to do it in the last 15 years. The parity, the short summers and for this year the longer season due to the Olympics all stand in the way of the Pens repeating.
However 2 of the leagues top 3 players play here in Pittsburgh. With a trio of dominant centres in Malkin, Crosby and Staal along with the goaltending of Fleury, the talent here will always give them a chance.
