Our defense is very vulnerable to injury. If any of Markov, Subban, or Gorges gets injured for an extended period we're in the lottery again. Losing Emelin might also hurt.
Every team in the NHL will struggle with an injury to 4-5 key players.

If the rest of our "question marks" come through Emelin Gionta Bourque Eller Kaberle then losing Markov for 6-8 weeks wouldn't kill us.

The Markov injury hurt a lot last year because Gionta was hurt, Cammy sucked and sooked then got traded away. Bourque never clicked after arriving.
