Cooke, Burrows & Kesler are coming into their own,
Naslund is playing well, Morrison has jump,
We still have the Sedins (and Shannon in reserve)
We still have Luongo and a good backup in Sanford,
We still have Linden, Cowan and Pyatt who can all contribute,
We kept the defensive core, our PK core and have added a little punch to our Power Play...We've added some young legs with speed and we still have AV who, hopefully, can put it all together again.
We were pretty happy with last season's performance and figured we just needed a better power play, to get Nazzy contributing offensively and a more dependable offensive threat from the third line to become true contenders.
We're not firing on all cylinders yet...certainly not compared to the second half of last year... but I feel pretty good about this team.
...and don't even get me started on the Forsburg thing
