Very true. I'm just saying that I think the injuries are felt more on D, especially in the playoffs. Very few teams have depth past 7th or maybe 8th d (and the 5th and 6th often have huge holes in their game) , but most teams can throw a number of guys into the forward position and they won't cost the team a game.

Lets theoretically say the injuries were 3 players all either forward or all D. Which lineup would you rather have in game 7 of the SCF:

Gagne Richards Carter
Hartnell Briere Leino
JVR Giroux Asham
Powe Betts Lappy

Carle Krajacek
Parent Bartulis
Marshall Lehtviouri

or

Hartnell Briere Leino
JVR Giroux Asham
Powe Betts Lappy
Carcillo Kalinsky Nodl

Pronger Carle
Timmonen Coburn
Krajacek Bartulis
