A few questions for you:
Is Del Zotto the real deal? Can he run your powerplay in 2011-2012? If not, who mans the point?
How about Derek Stepan? What are your point projections for him?
Gaborik? Is he going to man up and start playing to win long term?
MDZ has been in Torts Chateau Bow Wow many times the past 2 years. With Richards here now, he is not needed anymore to QB the PP. I don't think he has a big future here in NY. He is determined to make a big impact in camp, but I have no doubt that Torts will work against him. He has been a defensive liability. He will need a huge camp and even then he still be on probation.
Stepan might suffer the sophmore slump. I figure another 40 pts with 3rd line minutes which is pretty good considering.
Gabby might have his best year ever with Richards. If they both remain heathy. And if MDZ makes the cut, Gabby will benefit with his breakout passes.
