Muzzin is paired up with Drewiske, and all credit to Davis but he is no Mitchell or Greene. There is no real safety net for Muzzin, no veteran presence on his line. Those things make a huge difference.
I think that's the bigger problem, really.
Muzzin alone, fine. Drewiske alone, fine. They shouldn't be together. it forces Martinez and Voynov onto a pairing together, which isn't bad, but also isn't great. If any of those guys were with Mitchell, it shores just about everything up. Losing Mitchell AND Greene exposes us on a lot of details.
