We traded away Geno, but our team still has a lot fire power and 3 great lines, to go along with the best top 4 D group in the league.
Crosby typically plays with Cooke and Kennedy IRL, and has 7g 27a in 20gp. Playing with Kunitz and Sullivan, two players that are much more skilled, will only make the line better.
The 2nd line consists of a 40g sniper (Neal), a 25g 55a guy in MSL, and a 25g 50a guy in Eriksson. This is the best second line in hockey.
Our 3rd line consists of a player in Dupuis who is having a career year and right now is a great top 6 winger, a tough, gritty, 60 point centermen in Steen, and a 25 goal scorer in Little, who is the Jets #1 center IRL, but is also capable of playing winger.
Our 4th line features great grinders, that can also chip in some offense, and they will provide alot of energy.
Our 1st D pairing consists of a top shutdown guy in Orpik and a top offensive D in Letang. They fit each others style perfectly.
We feel we also have the best 2nd best D-pair in the league in Pietrangelo-Byfuglien, two guys that are #1, franchise Dmen, and top 15 in the league. They're also both big, tough players and can do it all.
Our 3rd pair is a very tough d-pair and we feel they will be able to do just fine in their roles, which will be limited due to our top 4 Dmen all playing over 20mins a game.
Fleury is a top goalie in this league and will definitely be able to hold the fort down with an improved offense and defense.

a team with a great amount of experience in playoffs for last year's cup run. The addition of Steve Ott makes the Bruins an even harder team to place against while he will make that the best thrid line in the entire league. defense knows how to get it done in front of the best goalie in the league. and there is the best backup in the league as well. Great depth all around.
We made some key additions that transformed our team into a contender. We believe we have improved the team in every aspect. Patrick Sharp is an elite center playing on a line with the ageless wonder, Ray Whitney, and an amazing goal scorer in Radim Vrbata. The second line features skilled forwards Andrew Cogliano and Antoine Vermette, and gritty veteran Brooks Laich. The third line consists of hard-hitter Raffi Torres, veteran center Daymond Langkow, and up-and-comer Mikkel Boedker. On the fourth line we have chippy Twitter king Paul Bissonnette, hard-working tough guy Scott Nichol, and offensive threat Boyd Gordon. Our first defense pairing is the best in the league. We put one of the best offensive defensemen in the NHL, Keith Yandle, with another defensive superstar, Dennis Wideman, to create this explosive blue line duo. Our second pairing has two grossly underrated defensemen, Michal Roszival and Rostislav Klesla, two serviceable, bang-for-buck guys. On our final pairing we have the youngsters, shutdown D-man Justin Falk and effective puck moving defensemen David Schlemko. In net, we have an amazingly talented goalie in Mike Smith. Smitty is a wall and routinely steals games. Backing him up is one of the best goaltending prospects who has proven he is NHL ready, Jack Campbell.
Chicago decided to trade players from their contending team and replace them by loading up on Montreal Canadiens, the third worst team in the league. Makes sense.
