So can we make an itemized list of which forwards on our team will

Cuz the Rags are boring, NJ is boring, everyone in the POs is boring. We have to beat boring teams.
Let's assume Harts-Gir-Voracek will do well.
Who else will?
Couts and Schenn will still be young and inexperienced so they wont. Briere probakly wont
Other than the first line, Couts and Schenn,and Briere, which forwards will play well against a Devil clone next PO season?
Youth, experience, and an incredibly emotional series against the pens , as well as a team that was a bad matchup for us.
The talent on the roster is not as great as last year, but talent was never our concern. What we need is for one or both of Schenn and Couturier to be a second line center that is responsible on both sides of the ice and able to lead a line. Last year that was not their role, this year it may be a different story.
