Again, 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.
We are comparing about 1/2 a season vs 3/4. During that 1/2 season Pitt's record was still top 4 in the conference. If losing a 15-18 goal guy is a reason for losing than half the teams in the league have that excuse. Streit hurts but Montreal marched on w/o Markov last year. Good teams continue to win bad teams continue to lose.

Anyway it is all in the past right now. This years team has zero excuses and look just as lost as last year.
