Youre mentioning their only real big flaw. Their 2nd line that was put together towards the end of last year lit things up (foligno, ennis and stafford), and their 1st line is also very good. With their 2nd line coming together and having the chemistry they did, that leaves hodgson centering the two top players, so he hardly has to carry the line (think morrison with naslund and bert) . all their missing is one piece on their team, yes its a major piece but these are predictions for standings and to be honest, theres 0 way they dont fix that hole during the season or who knows, maybe before the season, their owner isn't afraid to spend money

They also have high end prospects that might be nhl ready this year, a great goaltender and pretty good D. I predict Ennis (center) could get near a point a game this year.

They were barely out of the playoffs last year and lost more man games to injury (to top players) than any other team (probably). They also got rid of an overrated/undersized center and picked up a checking winger who is capable of putting up nearly as many points. which gives them the extra grit they needed

While they still need to replace the C position, i have no doubts with their top 6 being as good as it is, their d being good and their goaltending being good and not being as unlucky with injuries, there is no question they are a playoff team
