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.
The issue with the Pens toughness is that Cooke became soft last year, which really hurt our team toughness overall. I can understand why, he was at the gallows with the NHL, but we really need tough Cooke back. Other than him, our only remotely tough guys are Engo and Orpik. We need Mac Attack in the NHL
