The Defense will still be there, the goaltending is there, but they have no firepower (this from one of the lowest scoring teams last year). Their best offensive skater is Zach Hamill & he is an '88 born. I see a lot of close games in this season, but they can;t get all the bounces they did last year....can they?

US Division:
1. Tri-City Americans
2. Seattle Thunderbirds
3. Portland Winterhawks
4. Everett Silvertips
5. Spokane Cheifs

I think Seattle is getting all the bounces Everett had last year. That was evident in Sat's game against the Hawks. Portland had 20 or so shots in the 3rd but could not tie the game. 17 or so were saves by Bridges but the others were lucky bounces that went our way.
