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

Plus we still could have the depth to make a good trade like maybe Cammalleri while he's playing good or Plekanec for good D.
Like I said we just created hole in a line up that really wasn't that far off.
We don't seem to remember that we were dominating at the beginning of the season... The puck just wasn't going our way.
I know we have cap space, with Gomez gone, but we have even more now with Cammy, maybe to shore our D, some of the money will go to re-signing guys, but ya we have ton of cap space to try to find a replacement..
I agree that with Cammy gone there is a hole on the one of top 2 lines with Plek-Gio,but Cammy wasn't the answer, we had no one to work the boards, and one of Cammy and Gio had to go, and rightful so Cammy was gone, the way I see the lineup shaping up is...
Bourque basically replaced AK on the 3rd line, likely playing with Eller, both are the same, can score 20-25 goals, but can't be relied to bring it night in night out in on our top 6, but can fill in in need of injury, and seeing how Bourque at-least can play on the PK when he isn't scoring, I think it was the right choice.
So our 3rd line should be Bourque-Eller-Mikhail Grigorenko/Filip Forsberg
And a second line of Patches-DD-Cole, I think those are two good lines that have skill and size..
So basically I agree that they created a hole by shipping away Cammy, but he wasn't the answer, I think we need to find that replacement at LW this summer. Maybe we get lucky and win the draft lottery and get Nail Yakupov...
