Horton is certainly valuable, but the notion that this team is any more susceptible to failure due to injury than any other team in the league is simply a myth. Especially when those injuries are to Shawn Thornton and Danny frickin Paille.
The team struggled as a whole last year for periods (including the playoffs where they faced a team on defensive lockdown and a hot goalie), they also were 3-7 to start the year with everyone (including Horton) in the lineup. Teams go through fits and spurts, it happens.
