We could steal the first round off a well rested Lundqvist but I have strong doubts that we'd get past the second round, if we get that far. All in all this team is better than the consensus seems to think, but still not a legitimate contender, yet.
This only works IF Biron wins some games.
Our suspect defense (the same exact D as last season with the possible exception of adding McDonnagh) has trouble winning with Hank between the pipes... how's Biron gonna do? If Hank rests for 15 games or so but Biron only wins a few we could easily finish worse than last season.
This is to say nothing of the fact that we can't score any damn goals and there's no help in sight for that issue.
