Katie Strang of ESPN held and afternoon chat today...
Pittsburgh has an incredible top six, but will the extreme lack of depth in the 3rd and 4th lines come back to bite them?
Katie Strang I think their goaltending remains a bigger issue. Regardless of how well he plays in the regular season, I think it will be awfully difficult for Marc-Andre Fleury to shake the memories of last spring's trainwreck in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Now Vokoun is out with a blood clot and the plot thickens. I don't see this playing out well, despite Pittsburgh's tremendous talent up front.
Who will be the first coach fired?
Katie Strang Would not be surprised if it was Peter Laviolette. I really don't expect Philly to be very good this year, and though it should probably be Paul Holmgren to get the axe if they falter, the coach is usually the first to go.
