Its not such a huge loss that it drops us from 2-3 to 12-13. We played stretches without Suter, Weber, and Rinne in the last couple of years and didnt crap the bed that bad.

sorry, it probably keeps us from being the clear favorite in the central but it doesnt make us a lottery team.


for comparison sake, look at Philly post pronger... not dominant but not chopped liver either.

and for that matter if we are 12-13 are you projecting the Wings as 13-14? seems they finished below us last year and lost Lidstrom, which should be about equivalent to us losing Suter... following your logic the Preds, Wings and Jackets look to be the bottom 3 teams in the West.... yeah that makes sense...
