This team needs some time to gel still. Something to watch and be concerned with too though is the defense and the age on the team as well. Volch, Salvador, Zidlicky all on defense is going to be a problem to watch.
Also, even because of all the changes Deboer shouldn't get too comfortable. I don't see Lou being as patient this year with struggles after last year and the new ownership coming in. Also, if he insists on being brain-dead and continuing to play Gionta and sit Fayne, thats an issue that merits being put on the plank.
