I think it's a partial myth that this team is loaded with offensive talent.

In reality, Fisher was a 3rd line center on a bad Ottawa team. SK was deemed expendable (and worth very little in trade) to a bad Montreal team. AK was a non-producing entity on a bad Montreal team. We won't get into Legwand.

We have more offensive talent than before (Radulov is the big wildcard), but still it pails in comparison to loaded teams like Philly, Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Chicago and to a lesser extent LAK, Detroit, others.

Trotz is a big reason we are where are, but I don't like his complacency with lines right now when they aren't clicking.

I do like the lines you have and hope to see a change, especially to our "top line".
