Right now it's looking like the Blues have the most depth/balance among forwards. But let's wait and see a few more games. I'll feel better saying yes if the scoring stays high while the defense clamps down. If points are up but we keep allowing over 3 goals a game it just won't be as impressive. It'll suggest the forwards are cheating from their defensive responsibilities to get more numbers, and that's not all that impressive IMO. But if they clamp down and start getting back to 0, 1, 2 goals allowed in most games while continuing to score themselves, then I'll feel like the answer is yes.
