Mc Donough - I think he is the only defensemen we have including del Z that has more upside. I think there is more offense to his game than he has showed and I am anxious to see of this is the year.

Boyle - Can he be the player he was down the strecth (pre concussion) and fill that 3rd line center role efficienrtly and chip in 15-20 goals?

Overall style - Will Torts slightly change things up this season? Nash, Kreider, Hagelin will all be here from day one. That is quite an infusion of speed vs last October. I think you'll see a more "exciting" version of hockey with less of a collpasing shot blocking mentality. That will mean a few less points during regular season, but a team that will be better prepared (less exhausted and banged up) for a deep playoff run.
Once you know how to block shots you don't forget. That does not mean it has to be done for 60 mins a game X 82 games. That was last years team's identity. every year is different.
