It's painfully obvious that we lack talent up front. It's not a coincidence we finished near the bottom of the pack in goals once again last year.

We have a bunch of average players, nothing more. No 30 goal scorers, no PPG (or close really) players and all we do is continue to add more average, complimentary players, as if we didn't have enough already.

When a second year player like Eller is able to control the puck in the offensive zone as good as anyone on this team in the past decade and it's not because he's going to be the next Malkin, it just goes to show how poor we've been in that department for so long.
