nope. we're not any slower than average IMO.

i don't understand this unless Kassian is also gone somewhere. It's not like the fourth line was getting pushed around, either. IMO the fourth was the best line almost every night--best as in "doing what they are supposed to with the most success". Trading Powe for Rupp is going to negate some of why the fourth was successful in possessing the puck in the other guys' zone. Not sure what the deal is here. must be part of a larger plan...or something behind the scene we don't know about.
