I just don't see that defense being able to "go deep" in the playoffs. If they were to play a team like Philly, or any other physical team in the East, it'd be over.
There certainly is balance and experience in that lineup, but something irks me about it.
If that's what we had to go with though, I'd switch Gonch and Nisky.
IMHO, I see the Pens struggling defensively until the prospect pool comes up. Everyone can hate on DePo, but like Pierre said, the Pens are creating something dangerous in the backend.
