Outlet This Week Last Week What They're Saying

3 http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Can the one-two punch of Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth do the job in goal? Everyone seems worried, but not GM George McPhee. He told ESPN.com a few days ago that he's quite confident in his two kids.

After getting bounced in the opening round of the playoffs last year, the team is out to prove that they're contenders not pretenders for a Cup title.
