We were actually quite lucky that our entire top line and pleks (best 4 fwds) stayed healthy all year as well as our two best defensemen (pk and gorges) as well as our starting keeper until the end of the year.

The injuries we sustained in the end were to bottom 6 fwds and lower pairing D man.
Oh please you mean to tell me that man games didn't matter? Cole DD and Pac man were together for a while and the devleoped chemistry. Meanwhile lines 2 3 and 4 have never been together longer than 10 games. How can you develop any chemistry that way? Have you played hockey?
