    So, to get back to the original point, you can win a cup without a legitimate top line forward if you have 7/8 great top 6 guys.

    *And* one of the best D in the league *and* an MVP in goal.

    Does it matter? Nashville has that too and we do too.

    I have to agree with marakh, I think the organization is molding the team more and more like Boston but with a Detroit style of coaching with maybe more finesse. on paper it sounds like a an amazing combination. we'll be able to outplay in puck possession and grit. so steal the puck and keep it. if everything goes well this team is going to be off the chart in 2-3 years. hopefully we'll be able to keep all our essential pieces.
    The only question mark down the road for me is spezza, do injuries becoming too much of a problem or does he stay with the team past this contract. at his age he'll be past getting a raise(most likely be in the situation Lecavalier is in right now which leaves us with a 1a 1b in spezza turris)

    I still have to warm up to Lazar personally but i understand what they are trying to do. get a character guy that can score and hold the third line possibly play on the 2nd at times and hopefully bring in 20 goals from those positions. kind of like where Mike fisher should of been instead of being relied on as a 2nd line center.
    still i'll be keeping tabs on him this year to see how his development progresses as apparently he's supposed to become the go to guy in edmonton. he's said he's gonna be able to show his offensive side of the game even more. should be interesting.

    I think this is one of the best put together teams in the league. Remember, when Murray took over, Muckler the Tool had let Chara walk, so that's a massive step backward. He's since positioned this team to take massive steps forward in the next 5 years.

    honestly there's been a lot of talk around this site about cowen being traded and maybe i thought it was a possibility I have to say that after having seen him fight in the last year i have to say the kid is deadly. he's received a bunch of MMA training and he's developing a mean streak, might not be the type of open ice hitter that Gryba projects to be but more and more I see this kid as being the amazing defensive top 2 d-man with enough offensive upside to be able to rack up 30 points every year. I can understand if this is one of the players Murray does not want to let go. he's the kind of D-man that his game doesn't get fully rech his peak till he gets to around 28 and up.
    he's not Chara but he could have the same importance on the sens then Chara did.

    guy writes like he's a 13 year old doing a school research project for his school. won't worry or gauge too much on what he said. seems fascinated by numbers instead of plays. short bus is parking in his driveway.
