I pretty much agree with all of your assessment. Good job on that. The one thing you didn't really note is Vinny is finely 100% healthy. As noted here:
His shoulder really hurt his game the past few seasons and now he seems primed to have a huge rebound season in my opinion. The line of Lecavalier, Purcell and Conacher has looked great in camp and I don't expect that to let up one bit. I think our second line will be quite a bit better than last year given Purcell's maturing, Vinny's health and Conacher's willingness to get dirty and play hard every shift.
