Landeskog will be that sort of player in short order, although I agree on the top line generally. If Duchene is going to be an elite center he's going to have to get his nose dirtier and they may get more out of the second line that way unless Stastny can make his line go.

They were all about speed and transition last season but they sacrificed a decent portion of it on the blueline to get bigger and more defensive-minded. They should be tougher in front of their net but their overall possession game seems questionable. Better goaltending will surely help the numbers but they still have the look of a team that will lose the possession/shot battle. Opening up against Detroit & Boston could make that particularly evident. They've got a pretty tough opening month schedule.
