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.
