We're also actually pretty deep, and unlike the past, this "depth" isnt led by 4th liners. Matt Calvert is NOT a younger version of Derek Mackenzie...not sure what the dude has to do for some of you guys to believe he can put points up in this league.
1- having the best offensive team we have ever had wouldn't be hard, but this year is not the year for that;
2- I would be hard pressed to name guys who would be sure shot top 6 forwards on a good team. Some of the crappy ones, well,like us you have to put some one up there
3- I'd say our depth is led by a group of 2nd/3rd/4th liners with an emphasis on third.
4-for me to believe Matt Calvert can put up (lots of) points in this league he just has to do it for a season. Same with Joey, CAM, Arty, Dubi,Brass, Umbie, JJ, you get the point. Some of the guys have to re-prove others are still waiting.
