It's tough to lose a guy that's either #1 or 2 in several important categories such as faceoffs taken and % won, SH TOI, blocked shots, takeaways etc. but we've got a deep team and we will rise to the challenge. Luongo is looking exceptional this year and if he's focused and on his game without being rattled in the playoffs, it eases some of the responsibilities of forwards and D. Speaking of D, that will also offset some of the defensive pressure on the forwards with them returning to health slowly. Malhotra is a key component to our defensive game, but champions find ways to win. If this team is meant to win, they will work their ass off and find a way. A huge injury like this can really pull a team together to work through the adversity - let's see what we're made of.
