They may be better than last years squad in the years ahead, but this year? Land of fairies and unicorns. Allowing for the fact that last years teams primary problem was how banged up everyone was.
Eh, we'll agree to disagree. Even with the rookies hitting the wall, this team has guys that can step up. None of Read, Schenn, or Couturier are being depended on in such a capacity that the outcome of the game may depend on them. Couturier is playing top line PK minutes now, but if he starts to slow, this team has other players who can step up and play those minutes, maybe not at the same level as Couturier at his highest, but not anything where the PK will suddenly become a guaranteed goal for the other team. Time will tell on this though, I suppose.
