Does Dallas deserve to be mentioned with Detroit, New Jersey, and Colorado?

The new Avs have not proved anything. Sure the addition of Karyia and Selanne look good on paper. The Avs now have 5 guys who could be 'the man' on most of the teams in the NHL.
But they won't do as well with a stacked line-up. I've seen it happen before. The guys who end up playing second line, and thus getting less ice time, would be hard pressed to crack 60 points.
Just look at Turgeon or Weight has an example. Give them 22-24 minutes a game and they will give you 80+ points. Give em 15-18 minutes a game, and they will give you 50 points a season.
