Just going to throw this out there as well...remember the huge shift in dynamics coming out of the last lock out? I think we're seeing it again. Look at who are dominating the charts right now: Vanek, Marleau, St Louis, Kane, Parenteau, Staal...Thornton to some extent. None of these guys rely on set plays, or to my knowledge, the same kinds of skill sets the Sedins have. With the exception of Thornton, these guys are all much fast then the Sedins, and can also score very well on the rush. It's not a knock on the Sedins by any stretch, but it's showing that the game has changed.
Also, anyone of those guys mentioned play on a team that can attack with any line, and have at least two lines featuring a star player. So the Kesler injury affects the Sedins' play too.
At least we know we can, more or less, play defensively if we need to down the road.
