Is it just me, or does this year feel different?

1) I want to know what happens if Legwand or Wilson get shoved to Wing. We have Marcel friggin Goc playing 4th line center with this depth chart. I put the projections up for the lines and I still firmly believe the stats.
Hornqvist-Lombardi-Sully 65 goals Last year scored 66
Dumont-Wilson-Erat 55-60 goals Last year 46
Kostitsyn-Legwand-Ward 45-60 goals Last year 31
Smithson-Goc-Andersson/Tootoo 30 goals last year 21/27
Belak-callups 5 goals
Lightning you are not understanding the Predators concept and stratagy. Look at the lines above, if you are the opposing coach, which one get's your top defensive line and pairing minutes? If this team had a star, I could target the hell out of that SOB.
Now, do I not like the lack of a vet in the defense? Yes. Do I not like the lack of a vet back-up goalie? Yes. BUT there is still time to sign one of the guys out there.
If Nashville had a star player it would take away money from the other parts of the team. Give me depth and opposing coach's headaches over a 'star' who can get hurt, underperform, and can be stopped with a good defensive strategy.
Now back to the topic. This year seems so weird but in a good way. I can see the leadership group changing their attitudes.
