Well since we're on the subject of Bucky, then I'll ask...who do YOU think is poise for a breakout this year? I'll go with John Mitchell.
This one I can field Mitchell needs to break out as well as use his formidable size or Chris Hickey will be getting the minutes instead. My gut tells me Patrick Johnson will have a huge year, maybe lead the team in scoring, after making a favorable impression at the Habs prospect camp. I also think Derek Stepan will be an impact player his 1st year.

I feel pretty good about the offensive depth and look for McDonagh and Smith to assert themselves on the backline this year and I won't be shocked to see Gudmundson challenge Connelly for starting Goalie. It'll be a great year if the players jibe together.
