Cool thing about the new NHL, it's as much about how well your team comes together and gels as a team as anything else. So it's really tough to say whether we'll soar or crash.

One thing, if we do stay at a status quo lineup and a $39M payroll, we'll be in really great shape to take on any impending-UFA salaries around the deadline to make a late charge, which some of the jammed-against-the-cap teams might not be.
This is the same quote every year. Then we don't get anyone at the deadline (or close to it) and everyone says you don't win with deadline deals. Of course, Recchi and Weight would probably disagree.
