Well if the 4th line is more than just a fluke, that lineup wouldn't be terrible. At least I would feel very good about the lines defensivley. The only question mark would be the 3rd line, I dont really know how good josefson and tedenby are defensivley.
On offense, I think a line of kovy/zajac/zubrus has the potential to put up alot of points, but I don't expect sykora to have a 20 point goal season, and I don't expect elias to have a repeat of last season either. Really for us to be succesful with that lineup, the 3rd line needs to be a regular scorer, I just don't see us getting anything but spotty/streaky goals out of the 2nd line. And while our 4th line was great in the playoffs, I don't see them being consistant scorers in the regular season.
The bottom half of our top 6 is going to lack scoring imo, that has me a little worried. Henrique is a great playmaker in the making, but I don't see him as a go to goal scorer, and the age of the line is going to take its toll over the course of the season. Bottom line is, something needs to be done. I don't think we need a parise caliber player to get back into the swing of things, but we def need more scoring. I mean the one thing this team really lacked is goal scoring, I mean I know we actually scored more than the average team this year, but our goals felt so hard earned, half the team shoots into the goalies pads. We need some guy that can beat the goalie on a wrister, we need semin. I think with a guy like semin, playing with 100percent effort, we are a better team than the one we had last season.
That was ranty and a bit disorganized but those are my views
