Well this is it for the forward corps. Brad 3 Lives has used up about 12..and I have no idea how he would survive another disappointing state of affairs.

The Flames upgraded where they needed to in the offseason (or as much as the wallet allowed). I was feeling great about this year until they put all the Canadian teams in 1 division. Now the Flames don't look so surefooted any longer....Markstrom has to repeatedly face his old team full of young vim and vigor, A juiced up Habs team, A solid Leafs team, and Conor McDavid 10 f'n times (which will be awesome :rock: :flashfap: ).

I have no idea how this is going to turn out...all I know is that an all Canadian division gives me wood! :woop:

So lets start off where we left off by punting the Jets in the nuts tonight and go from there.

With Lindholm as 2C and Bennett as 4C, they've robbed from Peter to pay Paul: less wing depth, and two quasi-centres up the middle.

Personally, I think that's the way you have to do it in the cap era. The Pens have been at their very best in the Crosby/Malkin era when they spent their cap room on a really good third line center rather than better wingers for their two star pivots. The Stars don't have a ton of scoring talent or depth, but I don't think their run was a pure fluke, and if nothing else they were extremely deep down the middle with Seguin/Pavelski/Hintz/Faksa.

The Avalanche did the opposite...and frankly they will probably regret that.

Yeah but Lindholm and Bennett aren't natural centres, are they?

Apparently this team hasn't won a home opener since 2009....well that continues. They started off well enough and gave me an opportunity to tweak my Budweiser Red Light. But that was it. They were lucky to salvage a point in that one as they were outplayed the rest of the way. Only 1 game so nothing much to cry about yet.

When they were drafted they were.
