The reason Boston and LA do well is their top end talent coupled with a good third line that chips in as well. While we don't have the top end talent, it could work if we have a top 9 that all produce. It's hard to shut down 3 lines on a nightly basis.

I'd love to add some top end talent and maybe Wilson and Forsberg in time will become two of those pieces. If they do and one or two of the other young kids develop, we should be fine. I really like what's coming through the pipeline offensively. Lots of diversity in our forwards which is good.
Very well thought out response. Thanks for that.
