Agreed. It seems the first pass is off and the forwards cannot get the puck from the D with any speed.

Regardless, this is a great chance for Yzerman to be reactive and make a move. He inherited a great team that was on the fringe but relied on Roloson to take them to game seven of the ECF.

Now he needs to address the breakout with some help of adding a defenceman that can move the puck quickly and a goalie who can keep them in games.

SJ is shopping Niittymakki, Harding could save the season if he could be pried out of Minnesota, Bachman looks like he can transition to a starter out of Dallas, Bernier could be had for the right price, Halak has taken a backup role to Elliot, Enroth is outplaying Miller...and Yzerman hasn't made a move.

8 points out isn't the end of the season (Anaheim last year) but climbing over 5 teams starts with someone who can play between the pipes in Tampa.
