Two games! And we have to break Break Bruno from Toews and Sharp.

I like the combo. Toews and Sharp will have to adjust a bit to not having Kane (a premier passer) but both are also decent passers as well as having shooting skills. Sharp and Toews both have puck skills and tend to be able to establish the zone and keep puck control. Bruno is the perfect guy for garbage goals in that scenario.
(BOLD PREDICTION) All 3 guys on that line will top 30 goals this year.

I really didn't see a "synching up" issue, what I do see is Toews playing poorly, making bad passes and giving away the puck a lot which he seems to do every October. Any rush to judgment about the viability of the line would be (IMO) premature.
