Exactly, we have 3 (hopefully) dependable offensive lines and a good 4th checking line.

If everyone does their job, plays their positions, and comes out of the gate fast - we should be talking playoffs.

Little - Ladd - Wheeler
Kane - Burmi - Wellwood
Stapleton - Maxwell - Machacek
Glass - Slater - Miettinen

I think this looks a bit better:

Little - Ladd - Wheeler
Kane - Jokinen - Wellwood
Poni - Burmi - Antro
Thor - Scheifele - Slater

Hey! A 3rd line!

(Don't rip me on the line-up - I'm guessing, especially regarding Antro, Scheif, and who fills out the 4th line. Just going with concensus for the other lines).

Didn't we do quite well against Boston last season? Against Rask in particular.

It's just funny that everyone has that game as a write-off.

We got like our only back-to-back win against them. In Boston. If people are treating this game like a write-off, it's nothing against what people said before that game!

Afternoon game = eesh if last year's experience continues. Hope it doesn't since we have what, 11 afternoon games this year.

I'd guess that they want to apply the ads as close to opening day as possible in order to keep them looking fresh.

Maybe the fans are getting new ads on the boards as a thank you.

I don't think they'll put Scheif on the 4th line. Why keep him up if you're just gonna play him 4th line.

My guess if Antro is back they'll do 4th line with 2nd PP. That way they can shelter him.
If he looks good and stay then he'll spend time on the 3rd line with 2nd PP when injuries start to hit.

It definitely worries me too - notice I only posted the difference between the forward lines?

Intervals? I don't think they'd leave the bathroom for the duration of the game!

Yuck.

IF we keep our top 4 healthy with a early return from Bogosian... technically our D have improved

I agree. An early return by Bogosian and relative good health on the back end along with Pavs play will be the biggest key for the season. Otherwise I think we have improved enough on the front end to compete for a playoff spot.

If all goes well for Bogo for a mid-Feb return I hope he can squeak by and play in the 2nd Pens game. It will probably be a revenge game for the 1st meeting.

I just hope the Peluso and Wright experiments turn out better than the Maclean one last year.

I went out to Hy's with my wife for dinner just recently. There was a group of about 10 Sens players there eating as well. The server pointed them out to us when we were paying the bills. :p

Very, very different playing styles. MacLean was picked up as more of a point producer who could maybe play top 6 in the future, where as these two guys are never going to be top 6 guys imo. They will be looked upon to play solid defense and bring some energy when they are on the ice.
