With the addition of Vermette and Hanzal's maturity I no longer think we're that weak in the middle. Both guys created opportunities and didn't seem overmatched.
I'm more concerned about our wingers. Boedker looked good, and so did Doan, but having Vrbata and Whitney as our most reliable scorers scares the **** out of me. One is streaky, the other's getting old. These guys should be our secondary scorers. And we got the most we can from Pyatt / Korpikoski / Brule / Chipchurra.
We really need an upgrade on our finishing touch. What hurt us more than anything was a lack of execution (scoring winger), not a lack of opportunities (playmaking center).
I love the idea of having 3 scoring lines with equal minutes. It's worked out pretty well for us so far.
