I don't remember having Gainey's teams having so many problems with injuries. Also Gainey had the luxury of having prospects developing in Hamilton and being called up from time to time. Those who sucked GTFO'ed and the others graduated. Now the cupboard is empty but it will be full again next year as many promising prospects will join Hamilton.

I think what hurt the depth was drafting so many NCAA/College players. Instead of joining the farm after only 2 more years many are staying at school for an extra 1-2 years.
