That's not a fair comparison. Streit wasn't out 40 games, he was out 82. Okposo was out for more then 40 games as well. Your not even close, and that's not even mentioning the revolving door of injured defenseman and dp. When 2 of Pittsburghs top 4 players are out for at least 3/4's of the season, then you'd have a valid point.

The wear on players trying to pick up the slack, for a few top players being out for 3/4's or more of the season, takes it toll.
