The problem is - Fisher, Legwand and Spaling are not even close to Malkin,Crosby and Staal...
No other team has anything close to Crosby, Malkin, and Staal. What other choice to Trotz have with the center position, Smith or Willy? Our strength is Weber, Suter, and Rinne. Our 3rd and 4th line match up well against most teams in the Western Conference. With the addition of AK and Rads, our top two lines should be much improved as well. Are the Preds top 3 lines as potent as the Pens? No. But on most nights, we have the better netminder and defense.
