I think we should stop being so focused on Ovi and look at the rest of the team. For instance, let's focus on the forwards. We currently have only two 30 goal scorers among our forwards - Ovi and Backstrom. Only 3 of our forwards have ever broken 60 pts. - 8, 19 and Ribeiro.

Over the last few years we lost a lot of skilled players: Semin, Fedorov, Kozlov, Fleischmann, and even Knuble. All those players had higher skill sets than anyone on our roster, save for the big 3. At this point, I think that we simply lack the skill level necessary to play offensive hockey.
