The same can be said for every team of course, but the margin for error when you have a game breaker is greater. When you don't have a truly elite scorer and you lose depth, it just gets that much harder to win.
I think it's just coming to a point where that's not the case anymore. I think our top-six, while not the best in the NHL, is still AMONG the best. We back that up with great coaching/goaltending and Zdeno Chara - and all of the sudden we're Cup contenders.
We're missing a piece right now. Having Caron, Hamill, Sauve and Colborne as non-options to replace the fallen depth despite their respective draft positions is hurting us. We don't have the talent to pull up from Providence in an emergency.
