I don't think we have improved since last year. Yes, scoring depth is much better. But that is offset by decrease in our top line as well as decrease in PK with no Manny and Blake. And I think our defense is worse than last year losing Blake and decline in Boyle's play. Goaltending is a wild card. Niemi has the ability to steal a series where Nabby didn't. We need Niemi to step up to beat Detroit.
