Biggest reason:

Entering the season, our 5 most important players were (no particular order): Richards, Carter, Pronger, Timonen and Emery.

Pronger played as expected, and has also really elevated Matt Carle as well. Pronger has struggled a bit the last 7-10 days, but generally has played as advertised.

Emery was excellent for 6 weeks, but then got hurt.

Timonen, has been nowhere close to the top 10-20 defenseman he's been the last 2 seasons. Hopefully as he continues to heal, his play will continue to rise ... and bring Coburn along with him.

Richards started hot, but has really faded. Now, not only is he not producing offensively ... he's turning the puck over and making poor decisions at an alarming rate. He hasn't been the same player since the Booth hit.

Carter ... has generally played well, but he's not finishing. He's getting the shots at the opportunities, but hos shot accuracy has completely vanished. He needs to start burying the chances.


We don't have any superstar level players ... but you team goes as your best players go ..... Richards, Carter, Timonen and Coburn need to elevate their game in order for this thing to get turned around.
