What team can survive that? Pittsburgh that might be it, and even now with out Staal you can argue that losing one of Malkin or Crosby would cripple them.

If Stepan and Stall go down, odds are Miller comes up. Also Kreider has played Center in the past, while adding a center is a good idea it is a luxury not a necessity.
