He got some point producing defencmen in Franson and Liles which was a glaring weakness. Our bottom 6 will be well improved with Armstrong ready to have a full year and Kadri/Lombardi/ Bozak all depth for a top 9 role.

I expect Connolly to get anywhere between 45-60 points, Expect 55 - 65 out of Grabo and 40 points from one of Bozak or Lombardi depending on who plays.

Boston - Stanley cup champs

Krejci - 62 points
Bergeron - 57 points
Peverley - 41 points


Connolly - 42 points
Roy - (injured) - 35 points
Gaustad - 31 points


Plekanec - 57 points
Gomez - 38 points
Halpern - 26 points
yes you do need a legit #1 to win unless you get tim Thomas goaltending or zedno Chara D.

2011 Krejci, Bergeron

2010 Towes

2009 Crosby Malkin

2008 Datsuk and Zettberg and the losers had Crosby and Malkin

2007 Getzlaf and Macdonald

2006 Eric staal

2004 Lecaviler

2003 devils didn't have a top C but they did have ROCK SOLID D and Brodure

2002 Yzerman and Fedorov

2001 Sackic and Forsberg

2000 arnott

1999 Madano and Newy

1998 Yzerman and Fedorov

1997 see 1998

1996 Sackic and Forsberg

I could keep going back as you can see history shows that yes in most cases you DO need a legit top line C in fact a lot of teams have 2
