If this team is going to do anything it's going to be because of Ryan Miller. He needs to play like Ryan Miller of 2 years ago. Ehrhoff is a bit over rated as well. We had him in Vancouver and yea he can put up points on the PP, but he is not the most sound player defensively. Leino is overrated as well, he is a 3rd, maybe 2nd line player at best. He had one great playoffs with Philly then Buffalo jumped on him and gave him way to much money. Having said all that, Ennis is a stud forward and can't wait to see what he will do this year. Hodgson has some great on ice vision and play making ability, as well as good hands and a good shot, let me assure you, Vancouver fans are sad that he was traded.
If Buffalo does well in the playoffs it's going to be due to Ryan Miller putting up some elite goaltending, and the young guns really stepping up.
In closing, that's a risk i'm willing to take at 28-1, i'll probably sprinkle a little amount, maybe $20-$30 on it just to have a time ;)
Just need John Scott to play a physical role vs The Division foes on certain nights ( Bruins)....
Ott should be on the 3rd line ...
Pominville,Stafford, and Vanek could have the best years of their careers ....
Miller should benefit from the shortened season .. Ruff tends to play him way too much .... Enroth is more than a capable backup ...
SURE I understand why the Bruins are the Fav to win the Division , but Rask could slip up in the starters role ....Do think Seguin is gonna be a great one
Go ahead and sprinkle some coin down .... why NOT >????
Best of Luck Brother
