[QUOTE=Bruwinz37;57832861]I have to say that there are a lot of questions about this team. It really begs the question why Haggs and the NHL power rankings are so bullish on the B's. I get that they had a lot of guys overseas and have a great core of players....but there are a lot of question marks.

Things I am pretty sure about:

Seguin will emerge as a dominant offensive player
Bergeron and his line will continue their success
Chara will be Chara, Seids will be Seids.

Things I question:
Nathan Horton...even if healthy he will be rusty- Big Yes! Likely to Dissappoint!Lucic...slow start- Yes. We will continue to see defensive turn-oversRask....this one I am questioning just a little bit. He has proven himself in the past, but I still find myself concerned. Yes. Big concern if he doesn't come up Big.Depth at both fwd and D. Yes. Lucic & Horton success hinders the depth. As well, Bourque and the success of the 4th line. They didn't do so well last year in the playoffs. The defense is thin as well.
Dougie.- Big expectations and there are going to be many growing pains for a young defenseman.
