We have 2 brutal road trips early between Oct 17 and Nov 7....one to the West Coast and the other to Western Canada, Chicago, and Detroit.

1] If Sully is not ready to go, and his timetable gets put back to Thanksgiving or Christmas....we will be hosed and will struggle all year just to be in the running for a playoff spot.

2] The other variables of Mason continuing his play and the youngsters [Radulov, Suter, Hamhuis, and Weber] continuing to make steady, gains....can't be overlooked.

3] Peterson's influence on the PP.....

4] Which Zidlicky will we see......

5] Legwand and Erat's ability to produce without the influence of Kariya, especially early......I think Kariya made them much better players than most people are willing to acknowledge

I am most concerned about #1 and #5, to be honest.
