- I think Buffalo has built an excellent 3rd line that can stand up pretty well to ours.

- Really hard to compare 4th lines since theirs is made up of offensive players with some special teams ability, and ours is made up of an offensive wildcard with good all around skill, a thug/board man, and a gritty fearless scorer. We expect our line to play the tough, energetic game that a 4th line should play while actually having more offensive potential than Buffalo's 4th line - despite that line being made of players who are, more or less, offense-only.

- Buffalo has a great PK unit at forward. But we have perhaps the two best PK forwards in this draft up there. Their PK defensemen are probably a tad better. We have one who killed a ton of penalties and his team did great (Rolfe) and three who killed a ton of penalties for teams who didn't do so hot (Snepsts, Lidster, Hardy). Buffalo has a 2-2 split there.

- On the PP, considering the offensive depth we have at our disposal, it's no surprise that ours is much more potent.
