With two successful vets like Vanek & Ott, of course CoHo is going to do well (optimism yes but a much better player than Adam and he did ok). Pomms & Leino will play with new vet in traditional 2nd line and take all tough assignments....fine with me....and FES will feed off weak match ups.
I really think this "weakness" is just a moot point, our wingers are the leaders, the stability of the lines anyway. One vet center changes everything too.
Well, that's quite dependent on what the cap is. There's a possibility that we may be over the cap significantly. Internally, this article suggests that Ruff may be campaigning for another pivot--Arnott and Moore come to mind--but that may not be feasible, depending on how the new CBA reads.
