I'm not referring to their playoff performance. I'm referring to the fact they were two losses away from not making the playoffs. A swing of two victories. That much. They wouldn't have made it. The young guys didn't punch them a ticket to guaranteed playoffs. They barely made it in.

Michalek - Spezza - Greening
Foligno - Turris - Alfredsson

is what they used for a large chunk of the season last year.
And he scored a resounding... wait for it... 37 points last year! That's 17 goals scored! Yes... That must have meant all the difference compared to a Bertuzzi or a Samuelsson... Oh wait... That's no difference at all. Perhaps they had an awful season the previous year, held a fire sale, and were left with Greening as one of their only options.
