I'm sure Lou has something up his sleeve though.
Well I think the hope is that Butler can replace Sykora's production.
It's not realistic to go sign or trade for a player that can replace Parise. There just isn't anyone out there. Henrique has to step up big time. Josefson has to make the next step this season and this is make or break for Tedenby.

Zubrus will probably be the third line left winger to replace Poni's spot... It's not as bad as it looks once everyone is healthy... but Parise leaves a big hole. It's possible Lou has something up his sleeve by trading a defenseman but who knows.
