I saw the last preseason game between these two teams and came to pretty much this conclusion. For the first time since trading Benesch, Swarm have a legit five on five attack that will only get better until three years from now when they start trading it for picks. These strong bodies with decent hands picked apart the Rock D for good looks all night, and, they cashed in on enough of these to hang in any game the Rock could have given back. The win was made easy by the fact that the Rock attack was as sharp as wet paper. In five on five play, the Lefties were basically goose-egged except for Leblanc's one. Even the righties only got like 3 goals in five on five play. When the transition guys are only coming up with one (Gilbert off a faceoff), you have to score at a much higher pace than this! The Rock goaltending in both of the games was meh. It didn't lose the game, but, it certainly wasn't going to steal it either. What I see is that the D, plus Doyle (and Sanderson), may have all ticked over to one year too old at the same time. This should be treated as a re-building year. At this point, I'd rather see Evans with Ross and Leblanc, because Doyle's best years are in the rear view. I'm hoping they can move him to a contender for a late first round pick or a prospect close to the deadline. Either that, or I hope to see Sanderson healthy and Doyle's minutes/touches rolled back a fair bit. Don't see either happening, but, I'm hoping.
