Less and less talent on this team, anybody else worried?

Not that he did it much late in this season since he'd get benched whenever he lost the puck.
We now have 0 threat off the rush. All we have now is stuff like Gionta's patented gain-the-blue-line-and-throw-a-shot-on-net or the chip it in and chase it. Never seen a team this deprived of offensive creativity.
Of course we're easy to shut down. Perimeter play and good ol' work down low.
I agree, it's really pathetic and troubling.
