It's weird but the video feed was bad Sunday, worse today but a bit better yesterday. Real blotchy like its way over compressed. I wish it would play in an outside player like VLC or potplayer to test some smoothing / macro deblock filters on the feed.
Chemistry between Methot and Karlsson. Those two are going to be heavily leaned on. Methot will be thrown into the fire immediately. There's no real security blanket here. Cowen would have moved up to play with EK if things go poorly.
Where will the secondary scoring come from? We got plenty of clutch goals from depth players last season in the form of Foligno, Neil and Smith. Smith dropped off the face of the planet in the last quarter, Foligno's gone and on that note, so is Neil's linemate who helped him score some of those goals. I'm not 100% convinced that Greening can do anything away from Spezza. Regin's health, will O'Brien take another step in development, can Condra cash in on more of his breakaways... etc
