Thanks man! I wanted to replace the crown with a Preds logo but couldn't get it to work. Oh well, still happy with it.

Unfortunately, we do not have the even strength scorers that we had in years past. There isn't that true offensive talent that can carry a line anywhere in this offense.
100% agreed. Field a roster of:

Wilson-Fisher-Hornqvist
Smith-Cullen-Stalberg (or Forsberg but I digress)
Spaling-Legwand-Bourque
Hendricks-Gaustad-Nystrom

and I think you see much better results. Lines 1-2 score goals, line 3 can play in all three zones, and line 4 shuts down their top line. Easy. I don't understand Trotz's choices to mix types of players on lines when the vast majority of teams seem to play with truly offensive lines.
