You answered your own question. Check your bolded print.
The D is a big issue because Cowen and Kuba are gone. Replaced by Methot (who I think will do fine), but you are going to see the Sens get worn down in their end.
I just said the same thing about our offence though. It's our lifeline once again.
Looking forward to it.
