McDonald got the Conn Smythe stolen from him last year IMO, and had some great chemistry with Selanne. The defense alone is good enough to assure a playoff spot, but the forward corps is a big question mark for a Stanley Cup repeat.
Heh. I like how Burke threw McDonald under the bus during his mid-game press conference. "Yes, well, Getzlaf really established himself as the true #1 center for this hockey club during the playoffs, blahblahblah."
