We knew from the beginning this team would depend on it's offensive depth to score goals. We didn't have any great goal scorer but a bunch of decent offesive guys. Then we lose. When you lose as many of our marginal scoring type players as we have it really has hurt. Think about how many of the players that are out for the season were expected to play offensive roles for us,now compound that with Legwand missing 20 games, Erat missing a bunch, Suter missing more than a few.

Injuries happen, I understand but let's list our lines coming into the season.

Erat-O'Reilly-SK
Sullivan-Lombardi-Horngvist
Ward-Legwand-Dumont
Tootoo-Goc-Smithson

Dumont totally went south on us, as did Sullivan but Sullivan started out on fire, then got hurt, out for the season.
O'Reilly was a total shock at how well he played, then bam out for the season.
Goc stepped up and was really playing wel too, then bam he's out for the season.
Say what you want about Tootoo but he did play well to start the season, then, he missed a ton and really last night was the first time he looked like Tootoo.
Lombardi was supposed to come in and play a big role for us, he played 2 games then, he's out for the season.

We don't have one player we depend on to score goals, we're built to do it by committee and it's tough when you take 5 of the playes (4 by injuries the other is Dumont) out of that committee.
