One point I am caddy on this year is our injury depth. We don't have a ton of guys ready to step up and fill important spots on this team. That and the 3rd pairing D could be a problem.
We don't have offensive guys to come in, but hopefully if our offensive guys catch the injury bug, we'll be able to grind out wins like we did when we had injuries last year.

I'd say the chances of our third pairing being a problem are no better than the chances of them being solid. With a blue-chipper like Erixon and a solid stay at home guy like Valentenko pushing for spots (and Eminger waiting as a 7th), I can't see the third pairing being too troublesome.
