More than that. It's funny everyone, including management, seems to blame injuries, but even when we had a full lineup for the first 1/4 of season, we looked awful. This is a team who barely BARELY beat Buffalo and started barely .500 before the injuries started.
Point is, even with a full deck our team blows.
Exactly, most of the teams forwards to start the season were 3rd and 4th liners and some shouldn't have even been on the team in the first place.
It took Tatar awhile to crack the lineup and even longer to play on the top two lines, and Nyquist was stuck in the AHL, if they both played earlier we might have won some games at the beginning.
Rafalski left, Stuart left, Lidstrom left, and non of them were replaced. Holland is lucky Dekeyser fell into his lap.
