large holes at wing, enormous holes defensively, and questionable goaltending. a recipe for mediocrity.
We have skilled depth issues, but simply calling Crosby, Malkin, Neal and Letang "all-stars" underplays their value somewhat. We have the two best centers in the league, a First-Team All-Star wing, and a defenseman who's been in the Norris conversation for the past two years.
Nobody else can trot out high-end skaters like that. The team's not perfect, but I wouldn't say it's nothing special. The core is incredible, it just needs to be supplemented with a deadline addition or two. But you could say that about most every team.
