But since we can't predict who'll be injured and who won't, we still can predict that IF Bergeron and Gagné do not suffer from any side effects due to their injury, they made their team a much better one. They obviously bring their own contribution but make their teamates better around them.

Then TBay obviously improved. At one point? We obviously don't know but they do look like a playoff team to me.

And while the Sens do not look as strong as they have looked in the past, they did get rid of Emery....you know that famous "addition by substraction theory" we all love to use when it suits us....
I feel Tampa's biggest challenge is to gel all these newcomers to form a winning team.

If they get to do that, they might as well be playoffs bound.

Otherwise it looks like a ragtag bunch of spare parts cobbled together at the last minute.
