actually i think if we are going to win a cup it has to be this year.
thornton/marleau will be getting close to 34, and boyle will be 36 next year around this time.
havlat will be getting up there...32 i think.
pavs/burns: are pretty much in their prime. now and the next 3-4 years will be their best.
couture will continue to ramp up his numbers, but he is in a super hot streak this year and is still under the radar as far as opposing defenses.
vlasic is at his best defensively, though we could see a rise in his offense in the next few years.
so come next season, we still have 3 aged players playing as the focal point on a team that is craving speed/intensity.
what kind of roster moves need to be made? will marleau still outskate most defenses? will he go back to being a fixture in the center of the second line? will havlat maintain his speed?
im thinking DW needs to lay down some chips this year for a cup run or we will see our chances get slimmer and slimmer
