What we have going for us this year will help us be much better in the playoffs.
1)New aggressive coaching: We can take the game to the opponent and force our style. No JM rope a dopes.
2)We have a very balanced, deep forward group that varies in size, style and role. This should let us redesign our lines as needed against different opponents.
3)Price is playing at expectations. This guy is only getting better and you can see how focused he is on improving.
4)Subban IMO has taken another huge jump in development. Same with Diaz and Emelin.
5)Our bottom 6 is very solid physically and can play hockey. We can roll 4 lines.
What isn't going for us:
1)Undersized D: We simply need to get bigger and meaner on the back end. That will be fixed in time, our hands are tied this year, so we might as well not bother complaining.
2)Special teams need to click: We must get better at at least the PK, due to our new found undisciplined nature.
3)Vets Struggling: Cole and Gionta need to get going for them to make a difference, and if they don't, they're just gonna be taking up icetime from those who do step up.
