Is this the year Sounders FC wins the MLS Cup? Answering these five questions will be key:

1 Can new acquisition Eddie Johnson stay healthy?

The forward could be great, but has already injured his hamstring and hip flexor leading into the MLS opener.

2 If so, will he mesh alongside Fredy Montero up front?

The Sounders have long sought a consistent forward partner to pair with their leading scorer.

3 How will Michael Gspurning fare as the new keeper?

It won't be easy to fill the gloves of the beloved Kasey Keller, who retired after last season.

4 Can depth carry them in multiple competitions?

Quality through the bottom of the roster has helped Seattle win three consecutive U.S. Open Cups.

5 Is this a championship defense?

The Sounders have proved their ability to score, but allowing six goals to Santos on Wednesday raised serious concerns about the defense.
