I agree we gave up too many skilled guys and didn't replace them, instead relying too much on Ovie this year. Backstrom isn't really a goal guy, neither is Ribeiro. Wolski appears rather average also on the goal scoring front. Poor decisions GMGM!! Brower isn't worth 3.66 million and Ward is a 2 million player.

We need Bobby Ryan or someone like that on the team, a reliable winger who can perhaps reignite Ovie's line.
21ish million combined for Laich, Brouwer, Ward, Hamrlik, Schultz, Poti, Erskine. That's 21 million on 0 legitimate top 6 forwards and 0 legitimate top 4 defensemen.

We basically spend as much money on impact hockey players as the Islanders. But it's Ovechkin that's the problem.
