It was a huge difference. Losing Hamrlik was the equivalent of a baseball team losing their ace pitcher.
That's still to be determined though. In addition, Markov and Gorges were still on the team last season. You could argue we went from Hamrlik/Wisniewski to just Gorges, since just like last season, we had no Markov this season. We can also compare what we lost and what we gained? In that case, we went from Hamrlik/Wisniewski to Campoli/Diaz/Emelin. Explains the situation clearly. Hopefully the new management doesn't load the back end with inexperience next season and we won't be a lottery team.
