I would have loved to see the responses to this poll after losing to Edmonton and Pittsburgh last week.

07 was more talented in the regular season, but ran up against a San Jose group that was built for a playoff run. Big, puck control team that cycled the puck at will against a smaller/softer Preds group. Add a few injuries to key players and the Preds had no answer for the Sharks.

Poile learned from that season and has built a bigger roster with more grit and depth. The 2012 team may not be as talented on the top end, but their talent top to bottom and depth gives this team the edge if and when injuries hit. But don't forget the struggles the past few weeks with injuries to Gausted, Josi, and Klein. There is more depth on offense than defense. With Willy, Erat, and Tootoo out, the team still scored without issue. But the team struggled without Goose, Josi, and Klein.
