Forget star power. I'll settle for more guys who are consistently effective. We all love Callahan and Staal because they are by and large consistently effective in that they find some way to give this team a better chance to win a game.

Look up and down this roster and there are not enough guys who do that. Wolski, Christensen, Gilroy, Del Zotto don't. And to a lesser degree Dubinsky, Boyle, Girardi, Ansimov and of late Lundqvist aren't consistently enough.

I also feel the hockey IQ of this team is not up to snuff, although, I'm willing to chalk that up to the overall inexperience of the team.
