I see as us a bubble team.

To me, there's holes in the team but we had the same holes at the start of last season except of course for Parise. The problem last year before Carter, Ponikarovsky, Bernier, Gionta, and even Sykora was our scoring depth. We managed to patch that up pretty well.

This year our scoring depth looks a bit troubling, but the fourth line looks a lot more promising as well. With Parise's loss, someone has to take that over.

Defensively, we are more than fine. Goaltending is a bit iffy, I want to hope for the best from both Hedberg and Brodeur, but I can't ignore that they are both getting up there in age.
