Is there going to be a season?
The East division is gonna be a murderers row. With only 4 teams coming out per division, the Pens are going to have to play well to even get to the playoffs.
With the line-up they have, it's a crapshoot. They seem to have a good team, but who knows. They lost Horney's grit and have a a goalie that hasn't played a full season, but I do have confidence in Jarry. Drop the puck!!
Just saw that the Caps signed Chara. Boston media is pissed. Got him for $795,000. I'm not sure he helps them all that much. The Caps are fast and physical, Chara isn't real fast and I'm not sure how much physical he has left at 43. They have Carlson and Orlov. They signed Schultz, for what that's worth. But after Carlson and Orlov it's just some guys.
Older and slower.
Caps may bully their way to victory though.
Ovechkin, Wilson and Chara is still a lot of physicality
Oof...I think we'll find out pretty quick what sort of team we're going to field this year and how they will stand up. After the last couple years, I have my preconceptions but I hope like hell they are wrong and we can start out 3-0.
