They have great balance and any worry about virtego on Hiller (gyldenlove) has been pushed away as Faust has been sidelined. Depth has been the key.
There is a lot of skill on the top 2 units and the 3rd line is a really solid group of energy guys who can provide a lot of pressure and forechecking - very reminiscent of the Draper, Maltby, Mccarty line.
It is still an emotional team and I am not sure how well they are going to handle it if things start going south, tonight they picked 3 fights and were lucky only to get 1 instigator penalty, if they revert to their old ways of taking too many dumb penalties I think they may be vulnerable.
