Let's Go Buffalo!
Vanek looks awesome this year. We have not had a player look this dominating since Mogilny. I'm not saying that I expect he to score 70+ goals, but clearly he is looking to be a 50-60 goal scorer.
Winning the early games will take pressure off the latter half of the season, but as we saw 2 years ago, the only time of the regular season that matters most is the last month before the playoffs start. I feel pretty good about that the team will stay solid this year.
I feel that last year's team was a playoff caliber team that underacheived. Lindy seems to have adjusted the defensive scheme and is having all five guys collapsing in front of the net. As a result, Miller is facing easier shots and looking great. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but if they finish with less that 100 points, I would be shocked. I look for them to finish with 110 points and be neck-and-neck with the Habs for the division.
