Disagree. Things would look a lot different at this point if Daniel was healthy.

The problem is that whenever **** gets real, Ryan Kesler reverts to being a checking line centre. He's supposed to be the type of player who excels in the playoffs, but he's the exact opposite. Offensively he's consistently a terrible playoff player. He's great defensively, but it skews the whole line-up to have him check. (That's what Pahlsson, Malhotra and Lappierre are for.) And with Daniel out, this problem becomes a critical failure that can't be hidden.

That and our #1 defenceman has played like ****.
