Johansson was a child in the Rangers series but when you've got Laich as a top six center, Chimera at 2LW, Aucoin at 4C and Hendricks/Beagle playing prime minutes you're not a contender based on overall forward makeup anyway.

McPhee said they want to carry over the competitiveness of last year's group--IRT shot blocking and team D I guess--with more of an up-tempo style. It's not entirely clear what's meant by up-tempo. I'd hope that tempo/pace alone isn't perceived as the issue.
