Oh I agree, that's the problem. We need top end talent. But we do have key pieces in places. Guys like Hank, Dubi, Callahan, Staal, Girardi etc. The defense is pretty good now (didnt appear like it tonight), young and good. Staal/Girardi/Sauer/McDonagh has the makings of a very good top-4 that could stick together for years. Dubi/Cally/Stepan could be our 2nd line for a long long time. Anisimov has the potential to be very good.

I know people tend to get down after tough and frustrating losses but we are in decent shape.

Even if we miss playoffs, this season would be considered a succes for me. I mean look at Sauer/McDonagh/Zuke/Stepan and how they played so far and the emergence of Dubi and Cally.
