Have we sucked in the shootout because of injuries? Have we sucked at home because of injuries? Have we been unable to hold a lead because of injuries? Has Quincey singlehandedly cost us 20 goals because of injuries? Was Nyquist held off the roster for the oh-so-valuable Cleary because of injuries? Have we failed to play more than a couple 60-minute games this season because of injuries? Howard hasn't been anything close to what we need him to be, but is that simply because of his injuries and injuries to the guys in front of him?
Injuries have hurt us. (Pun.) But there's more than that to our struggles.
I would say yes to a couple of these. But your point taken.
I think the thing that really bothers me is how many seasons in a row are injuries going to be a major issue? These same core players are getting hurt year after year, what are the Wings going to do differently to stop this?
