So 2 guys in our top 6... One wasnt even good enough for ottawa and another one who wasnt good enough for us last year... And they should replace zach and sykora?
Our current lineup is okay to start the season with and we will go from there. Lou does this year in and year out, him and Deboer got this team better and better as the season went on last year. Although the season is shortened they will do the same thing and when Henrique comes back we will be even better. We will be fine.
Everyone should stop comparing this team to last year, we have to focus on the group of players we have right now and make the best of it. Lou will look for improvements during camp and through the season.
And Darche is a very suitable 3rd/4th liner. He is no slouch. Wont be surprised at all if he starts Saturday, and Butler had a great first season with Ottawa but injuries hurt him last year and had limited minutes on the 4th line. Butler has some good potential especially when he has the right linemates.

“I think winning against them in the big stage, not just for me, but for the fans of New Jersey, people that are supporting us and always take a second seat to these guys for whatever reason, now they’ve got to be pretty happy going to work and going to school and doing all their things that they do." - Martin Brodeur
