I guess I agree. It makes me really question at times the whole idea of a player's worth being measured by being 'good in the room'. I've played hockey, and I know how flaky some of hockey's customs are. If it's Mark Messier, or Brian Leetch, or Steve Yzerman, or Joe Sakic, I can understand the leadership thing. Otherwise, I think the bit about intangibles is overestimated. Again, having 3 or 4 of them replaced at one time adds to the challenge, and more so when the upcoming season is shortened. I really do miss Anisimov, have always been a fan of that guy, and miss his responsible play.

I believe that getting on without these three players is just part of the job this season.
