Historically, the higher scoring teams are the ones that tend to go deep in the playoffs. These teams have a greater chance to have a better goal differential, and that is a clear sign of team strength. As long as this team stays in the top 5, the window is wide open IMO.


To that effect, Schroeder finding his NHL game will go a long way in assuaging fears here. He needs to become a 2nd liner, eventually. If he is able to do that, then this team is fine for a long time. Centre ice will be taken care of with Schroeder and Gaunce on the way -- and possibly more in the Luongo trade -- and the offense will continue to hum along.


Offense is key here. It's a reason I think Gillis prioritizes forwards at the top end of the draft.
