Emery [3.00]

If Emery plays like he did in russia, and the way he played for the senators when they went to the final. Then this team has possibly the greatest chance to win the cup since the 70's.

Taking in to considering everyone of the top 2 lines can reach 30 goals, and Carter can make 40 goals by himself, Those lines are lethal. Include the playmaking ability of JayBo and Timmonen without having to defend for 5 other players,

I am not sure about the lines (Carter doesn't have much talent on his line; would Kreps take faceoffs and then move to RW?), but the roster is very, very nice. I'd like to see a decent 6th/7th defenseman added there. And Stevens may want Timonen on one pairing and Bouwmeester on another, rather than run those guys out there 25-28 minutes a night together.
