I honestly don't know who has an advantage and who doesn't right now. There is just so much that goes into this and at this point it's too hard to tell who will be in tough and who won't.
What I do like is that RNH, Hemsky, Hall, Eberle, Gagner and Yakupov all have been playing. Gives us at the very least 6 guys who can play in the top 6 that aren't going to be rusty.
I don't like that Smid, Potter and young Schultz are the only d-men that were playing. Could be a good thing for Whitney, not sure. Not a fan that Petry wasn't playing as he was a player that needed to build off a solid season, not sit.
I also like that DD played in the Spengler and got some rust off. Not too many starters are playing right now and that could be the difference between making the playoff and not making the playoffs for some teams.
The one thing I really hate and I mentioned it late last year, is we should've fired Renney last year, especially now with Kreuger being the new boss. We could've given him interim title last year and the team could've learned his system last year, instead we are left with a short camp for everyone to learn the new system.
