They are getting very little production outside of their stars. If the NHL restarts, this team is going to be in a world of hurt. No bones about it though, their top players are incredible talents, just no support, defence has been weak, and goaltending has been weak.
CalgaryHerald had an article this AM and they said they purposely did not go out and load up on veteran defenders because they wanted ice time for the youngsters. If you look at their defense compared to the Marlies.
OKC - 8 games played by 26 year old defenders
TM - 23 games played by 26+ year old defenders
They recently gave 26 J.Henry a PTO contract to help with the youngsters.
I think they knew they'd have some struggles there.
Vaive and Ludzik on collapse, and Phaneuf.
