It is very hard to come back in a game when two of your lines cannot produce offense. Torts needs to get off his high horse and let a couple of "skill" guys into the lineup to gain some balance. We will be better off in the long run with a more balanced lineup.
What skill guys? MZA or Wolski? Both mediocre players that most likely won't help any. This team has 2 decent lines and even then you have guys like Anisimov, Hagelin, and Callahan (as much as I love him, he's not the most skilled player in the league) on the 3 lines. The best player Gaborik goes a million games without scoring. Our second best player probably won't even crack 60 points this season.
