It's time to take a shot at our friends North of the border - here's a look at their potential opening night roster (they don't have much cap space right now):
A Kostitsyn-Plekanec-S Kostitsyn
Price and Halak
It's self-explanatory. This team is HORRIBLE. Match Chara up with that top line of smurfs and shut them down then what can they do to you? Or, if Camo centers one line and Gomez the other, then you have to rely on the Kostitsyn's to do something for you. I would hate to be in that situation.
Then look at the defense - they are relying on Hal Gill and Paul Mara. That reminds me of the 2006-2007 Boston Bruins. How'd they do?
I won't even take a shot at Carey Price - it's too easy. I just can't wait to chant his name when he's getting pulled after giving up 5 goals in the Garden this season.
I'm predicting they will be 4th or 5th in the Northeast and will not make the playoffs and Bob "Papa Smurf" Gainey will be fired by Thanksgiving.
Go B's - 61 days until opening night
