I don't think I could go so far as to say it's why they lost, but the injuries to Wideman and Green were glaringly obvious problems, much more so than I would've expected.
As I mentioned when we traded for Hannan and when we traded for Wideman, if you're going to be paying a guy that much to be a bottom-pairing guy, you need him to move the puck, even more so on this squad.
