I am optimistic that the team will turn a corner this year, whether they will be good enough to be considered Cup contenders this year is premature.
If everything goes well with health, our forward corps is very strong, with three lines capable of scoring.
On D, it will depend if having two, maybe three small offensive guys paired with bigger, more defensive partners will succeed. Streit and Gus will have a lot to say about this season, along with a rebound of Coburn. Meszaros is the wildcard. A bit rebound and the D could be good.
I want Mason and Emery to be great in the net but Mason didn't look great in his outings so far. I didn't see any of the game but acc. to reports, Emery looked merely OK in his. They need to be very good for this team to do anything.
