It's because we don't have Lats, or a player like him. A clutch goal scorer. How many games did Lats win for us last season? Or Gaborik before that? Who the hell on this team is going to score? Nobody. That's who.
And because of that, everbody below Lats/Gaborik on the "clutch-scoring scale of the Wild" gets pushed up a slot, a slot that they aren't good at filling.
So yes, we aren't that bad of a team. But with no go-to guy, we are a go-nowhere team.
Time to start praying that a sniper just falls into our lap. Like the Devils hitting the panic button and thinking Kovalchuk is another Olli Jokinen.
