Yeah, I said near the beginning of the season that their putrid NYI-reject defense would kill them and what do you know, over a third of the way through the season they're sitting well outside the playoff picture.

Goaltending-wise, they're suffering from what I like to call "Philly syndrome" - ever since Khabby left after the lockout, they have not shored up the position with a reliable #1 in spite of countless other UFA signings. I don't think relying on a 42 y/o Roloson and Matty Garon is a recipe for success.
