So many.

Nash -- He will be roaring, but can he produce too? The marginals are so small when it comes to production. Line mates are essential too.

Derek Stepan -- He has so much. So much. But, he is still not good enough. In principle, pretty worthless (literary) in the POs last season. But still very young. MUST take another step. I believe it will come, but...

Michael Sauer -- I have high hopes that he will be back.

MDZ/Staal/McD -- Will anyone of them take another step and become complete Ds? Add the offense/defense that's missing?

Jeff Halpern -- Finally we will have a smart 4th.

"Gabbys fill-in" Will a kid take the chance given to him? JT Miller? Someone like Bourque?

Nash, Kreider, Staal, McDonagh

Want to see Richards play the way he played from Februray-May over a full season on a line with Nash.

3. Kreider

4. Hagelin
Good choice with Hagelin, I feel like he's an interesting player that no one is talking about right now that will be an important part of this team next year. If he can be better than this past season in the top-6 or top-9, this team can do a lot of damage. His production can give us that extra depth needed to put us over the top.

Kreider because I love me some homegrown talent. Nash is a close second though.

Kreider n Hagelin. Hoping Hags can improve even more so than last year. Still super upset that we took Leblanc over Kreider.

Mc Donough - I think he is the only defensemen we have including del Z that has more upside. I think there is more offense to his game than he has showed and I am anxious to see of this is the year.

Boyle - Can he be the player he was down the strecth (pre concussion) and fill that 3rd line center role efficienrtly and chip in 15-20 goals?

Overall style - Will Torts slightly change things up this season? Nash, Kreider, Hagelin will all be here from day one. That is quite an infusion of speed vs last October. I think you'll see a more "exciting" version of hockey with less of a collpasing shot blocking mentality. That will mean a few less points during regular season, but a team that will be better prepared (less exhausted and banged up) for a deep playoff run.
Once you know how to block shots you don't forget. That does not mean it has to be done for 60 mins a game X 82 games. That was last years team's identity. every year is different.

Looking to see what Nash can do with Richards as his centerman. Also, what Kreider can do in a full season.
