Our top 6 isn't the best. But its still pretty darn good.
Top-9 has variables. If Kassian/Schroeder can make meaningful contributions it'll be excellent.
If one of Booth or Raymond (Manny too) have bounceback years, we'll be a force.

The game is played on the ice, not on paper.
We'll have to see...

Just looking at top 6, I would say the Kings, the Oilers and the Blues have the best forwards. Fortunately, we have the Sedins, some good grinders, one of the best checking lines, good depth on D, and elite goalies.

LA has the best

Penner Carter William
Gagne Richard Brown

that is a stacked top 6 with skilled, speed, and toughness


Not really. Not when 2 of them are pending crack addicts, one concussion prone, and one is a pylon waiting for feeds. Kopitar and Brown are two true grade A top six.

Even LA writers will tell you that they won the Cup with defense and goaltending.

Other teams will also have injuries .If not to start with they will have them later. Also, most people here seems to underestimate out top line wich pretty much is the best in western.
