Too early to tell, but their key will be defense, because in the end they aren't loaded offense wise. What's hard on them is they have to battle the 2 best teams in the west within their own division. I haven't seen too many BJ games yet so I'm really not up to speed on them, but I have seen a mess of west coast teams and any team that can sweep 3 of them in a row then they are playing good hockey at the moment.
