Yogan and Hrivik obviously aren't as good as Kreider, but in effect they're all suffering from the same problem, which is they need others to start plays in order to finish them.
(It also doesn't help that other teams in the league have as many as 5 "real" NHLers.)
With a couple of the 2nd line guys and our future depth guys, most the opportunities have been on rebounds and we're not throwing enough mad pucks to the net. even the last game we won, one was a rebound goal and the other is a screw up by the their D and some alert play from Borque. The team is "scrambling to find ways to score goals". They need to move the puck a lot quicker and be quicker in the neutral zone especially against the better teams. A couple of games, including the one against SPR, it was like watching the Canes trying to get into the Rangers zone in a 1-0 game with 2:30 left.
