I was just thinking about this, when was the last time we had this many solid passers on our team. Elias, Josefson, Loktionov, Zajac and now Jagr. Even Clowe is known to be a very good passer from behind the goal line. I think you may see someone like Zubrus come out of nowhere and score 20 goals.
You had four of those guys last year, plus Kovalchuk who is/was a good passer, when he stayed away from the high risk passes. I can't speak to Clowe, since I haven't seen him play with any kind of regularity. Same thing with Jagr at this stage of his career.
I would say instead when was the last time we had goaltending as good as it's supposed to be this year. If you're a save percentage kind of guy, you can look at the 2011-2012 playoffs, where the results turned out to be pretty good.
