And I think offense is really going to be the question. If we don't have the Galchenyuk line... I'd be far more skeptical. Bourque (and even to a
certain extent Plekanec) have both struggled with consistency
. Cole is coming off a career year (that I don't think anyone felt he could repeat) and DD is still pretty unproven. That line was going to start facing tougher checking and there are question marks on both those lines.
You add a point per game center and winger in addition to what we have though? Huge difference. Even if teams put their checkers out against Galchenyuk, it's going to open up ice for the other lines and all of a sudden DD and his group might see some more open ice.
I'd still like to stack the deck for the future but there's no denying that the team looks great right now (easy schedule aside.)
You are right, Plekanec is having his usual fast start. The problem with him is he fades when the game start to mean more. We will take what we can from him while he is playing well. This will give time for Galchenyuk to continue to grow.
