I can tell you this, no one wants to play them in the playoffs with a full roster - even with their current D.
I'm not so sure that the Raiders have folks quaking in their skates this year! They have the distinct home ice advantage of the sportsplex and are a tough beat there, but away from home they are barely pedestrian at 10-9-0-1. Your back end is nothing like it was last year on either offence or defence and there is truly no one, like Hutton last year, to pick up at the deadline.

The Raiders are strong, but not last year strong. Zawadski, will need to channel his inner Jauques Plante to take them much past the 2nd round this year. IMO
