I would like to see this half-assed lame 48-game schedule if only to speed up the transitional process for us. We're a team in transition here, hopefully sprinkling in new young talent to eventually get us back to near the top (at least).

Fleury remains a HUGE problem. When did he last play competitively? Are we more comfortable with him NOT playing during the lockout, or less? The defense also has to answer a ton of questions, as does the head coach and overall defensive system. Brandon Sutter will probably replace Staal's defensive ability quite nicely, but we don't know about the offense (not everyone can put up 50+ points with guys like Cooke and Kennedy).

With Crosby and Malkin, we'll ALWAYS have a chance. But we look less 'complete' than we have since Geno's first season, imo.
